Did You Receive Any Monsoonal Rains? (7-day totals ending 7/17)

Monsoonal moisture over the Cowboy state over the past week has given portions of the area some very beneficial rain while others have missed out completely.  Northwest Wyoming and areas around Buffalo observed the most rainfall.  Much of Yellowstone and areas around Buffalo received around one inch of rain over the past 7 days ending Tuesday, July 17th. Some locations in both areas received nearly two inches of rainfall.  The driest areas were the central basins where little or no rain was measured. As of July 18th, downtown Riverton has not had measurable rainfall for 52 consecutive days.  Currently this ranks as the 20th longest streak with no measurable precipitation in Riverton's history; the longest streak in history stands at 93 days during the winter of 1945 -1946.
