As of Sunday Night @ 10 pm

Between the storm that dumped on parts of Albuquerque Friday night and a renegade shower on Sunday night, the Sunport has picked up rain every day since August began.   On Friday, the Sunport set a daily rainfall record by getting .91″ of rain.  After midnight on Friday, another 0.12″ of rain fell over the airport.   Then after a fairly quiet Saturday and Sunday a renegade shower popped up over parts of the metro again giving the Sunport another 0.05″ of rain.

When you add everything up, we’ve measured 1.10″ of rain in just the first 3 days of this month at the Sunport alone while other areas got more than 2.5″ of rain in just a few hours on Friday night.   We could have at least one more active day on Monday before we start to dry out some by the middle of the week.
