Do you think it will ever rain in EL Paso? The last few days it has been teasing, and teasing and still no rain in EL PASO.

See this is about Rain in El Paso.

It rained here a little last week and it was great!! the kids were yelling like they had never seen rain before in their life.
It would be nice if it rained a little more.

Saturday was our best chance for rain and it did look promising. But as always the storms fell apart before they even got to El Paso which maybe the NE and West Side got sprinkles. Same thing last night. there was some descent cells in the area and put a lightning show on but it really didn't amount to much.

If we don't get at least .24 of a inch of rain by next Monday then this will be driest start of any year since recorded rainfall first started in 1880 in El Paso

But be careful what you wish for. The Monsoon wont get its act together until early to Mid-July. Who Knows we may get an abundance of rain once it starts.

I bet your missing them Gulf Coast Mississippi Thunder boomers now.. One thing it did and did well was Rain and Thunder in Mississippi.

I know I sure miss them.. I would sit out under the driveway, and drink me tea and listen for hours.. the wife,kids and dogs were hiding under blankets. =)

The whole region is suffering from an extended drought. The last decent rain was on Labor Day and had it not been for the snowfall in November, El Paso would be especially dry. This comes after four yeras of above normal rainfall but for so little to fall in the last nine months may set a record.

This would be an excellent time to build our storm water infrastructure. 2006 was not an anomally. The Weather Service , which has been in El Paso since 1879 has recorded 15 years with amounts close to the 17.46 inches that fell in 2006.

Brace yourself because when it comes, it really comes. It's almost time for the rains to start, usually June doesn't have rain, the monsoon season often starts around the 4th of July.

Rains here are very nice because almost always the mornings will be perfect, and the clouds build up until evening and then it rains.

That sounds just like kids in El Paso. In every other place, kids are happy when there's a nice sunny day but here it's reversed. Kids love to go out and play in the rain, and act like nothing is better than a rainy day. They sit indoors day after day waiting for the clouds to thicken.
