(KTEN) – As we transition out of spring and into summer, Texomans are patiently waiting for the rain to stop.

Several inches of rain have fallen just in the last couple of days. In fact, Sherman, Texas, has clocked 4.66 inches of rain in the span of five days. If you think that’s a lot of rain, you’re right.

On average, Sherman sees about 4.54 inches in the entire month of June. This means that we have received more than a month's worth of rain in less than a week’s time. 

May was an active month, with 23 days of severe weather threats. That, of course, comes with high rainfall totals, too.

Sherman managed to clock 10.57 inches. This puts us at the 11th wettest May on record since 1897. While it didn’t manage to crack the top 10, it’s very close. 2021 managed to take 9th place with 10.86 inches, and just a year before, 2020 taking 8th with 11.14 inches of rain. 

 

So far this year, our rainfall total is up to 30.21 inches compared to the year-to-date average as of June 5 of 19.66 inches. Lake levels are up as a result, and we have managed to stay drought free.

 

Rain chances are slowing down as we patiently await high pressure to settle in to bring in summertime heat.
