Rainfall totals YTD

Through the first seven months of the year, the city of Liberty is less than half an inch below the average for rainfall year to date. KSHN maintains the official U.S. Weather Service gauge in the city of Liberty. For January through July – 32.13 inches of rainfall were recorded - just 38-hundreds of an inch below the seven-month average. That is because of heavy rainfall experienced in January and February. However, for March through July, 20.01 inches were recorded at the official gauge here at the KSHN studio. That is 3.9 inches below normal for those five months.  June is traditionally the wettest month of the year in Liberty County with an average of 7.35 inches. This year, 5.19 inches of rain fell during June. The average for July is 5.2 inches with 5.05 recorded this year. As that below average rainfall in recent months has combined with unseasonably hot temperatures, conditions across the area have been drying out. As of yesterday (Tuesday), the Keetch-Byram Drought Index currently shows the Liberty County average in the 500 range. That’s the mid-way point of the index.  Liberty County Commissioners Court generally does not enact a burn ban until that index tops the 575 mark. According to the Texas A&M Forest Service, Liberty County is in the low to moderate range for fire danger. The U.S. Drought Monitor lists only the northwest corner of Liberty County as abnormally dry.
