December 2011 U.S. Statewide Precipitation Rankings

December 2011 Statewide Precipitation Rankings are now available.

Just as it was with the December 2011 statewide temperatures, precipitation also had huge contrasts across the lower 48 states.

Dry, Very Dry:
California, Nevada, Washington and Oregon had their 2nd driest (out of 117 years of data) December total precipitation.

Wet, Very Wet:
New Mexico, Kansas, Arkansas and Ohio all had a top ten wettest December on record. In stark contrast to the driest Summers on record for the southwestern U.S, Arizona to Texas were all well above normal for December 2011 precipitation.
