2012 Weather Comparisons

Posted by romeethredge on January 10, 2013

2012 was another interesting weather year. Our weather station at the airport just south of Donalsonville enables us to take a close look at the weather here.

The water balance provides a quick look at the amount of water that is in surplus or in deficit calculated based on the incoming water (rainfall) minus the demand for water in the form of evapotranspiration (ET). A negative value means ET is higher than rainfall for a particular period.Fullscreen capture 132013 43453 PMFullscreen capture 132013 45743 PM

Here’s the rainfall data that shows we were still below the average but much better than 2011, also there were some areas of the county that had much more rain than what fell at the airport.
