ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – It appears the faucet over Albuquerque has been shut off. During the past two months Albuquerque has seen an drastic drop in rainfall.
In July, the city recorded 3.28 inches of rain which was the city’s 7th wettest July on record. Then the switch flipped. Albuquerque recorded .32 inches of rain last month which made it the 10th driest August on record.
Despite the change, the state has been blessed with heavy rains in late spring and early summer. Forecasters predict an even wetter winter because of El Nino weather patterns.
