July proved to be one of the wettest on record after a pair of storms last week dumped more than 1.3 inches of rain at the Albuquerque airport.  Exactly 2.77 inches fell at the Albuquerque International Sunport in July, tying it for the ninth-wettest July since the National Weather Service began record-keeping in the 19th century.

It was the wettest July since 2008, when a whopping 3.38 inches fell. With all the rain that fell statewide last week, New Mexico is now only in “exceptional” drought over a quarter of the state. Last week, more than 35 percent of the state fell in the worst drought category. An additional 50 percent remains in “extreme” drought, the next to worst category.
