Rain makes brief appearance, area still behind on totals

With any luck (and a lot of prayer), Brady could quite possible catch up to the September average monthly rainfall (3.60 inches)’factoring in the 1.41 inches that fell this week and the prediction of other scattered thunderstorms throughout the weekend. Brady recorded 0.54 of an inch on Tuesday added to the 0.87 that fell on Monday. With one of the driest and hottest Augusts on record, Brady hasn’t charted any significant rainfall since June when 4.28 inches of precipitation were recorded. That measure was sadly followed by only 0.75 inch in July. The average yearly rainfall through September is 21.10 inches. Along with the majority of Central Texas communities, Brady falls desperately short of that total with a mere 13.43 inches. On Wednesday, temperatures throughout the afternoon varied from the mid 70s to low 80s with winds coming form the southwest at 10 to 15 mph. Rain totals throughout McCulloch County on Tuesday ranged from no precipitation in Doole and Mercury to 1.10 inch in Camp San Saba. Showers were scattered in Rochelle with totals varying from 0.30 inch to 0.50 inch. Other slightly moderate rain totals came from Calf Creek, 0.50 inch; Brady Lake, 0.50 inch; Voca, 0.40 inch; and East Sweden, 0.38. Other reports as of press time Thursday included: Fife Trace Lohn 0.05 Melvin 0.10 Pear Valley 0.12 Ford Ranch 0.45 Weekend forecasts call for partly cloudy skies with a slight chance of scattered thunderstorms, expected highs of 86 degrees on Saturday and Sunday and a low of 55 on Saturday and 63 on Sunday.
