2012 Precipitation and Temperatures

Now that 2012 is in the books the summary of both the precipitation and temperatures are available.  While all 3 stations(Thayne, Etna and Star Valley Ranch) have heaters to melt snow, however depending on the wind, melted precipitation is usually well under observed.  The two accurate observation sites for precipitation are both   observers.

The normal annual precipitation for Star Valley is between 21 and 25 inches.  2012 ended up a little below the normal.  However the summer of 2012 was one of the driest on record.  Fortunately the pattern changed and the Fall was quite moist.  Most noticeably, December produced well over 3 inches of precipitation at both stations along with over 4 feet of snow.

Following is a table for the two stations for the 2012 precipitation.

Following are the 2012 temperature summaries for Star Valley Ranch, Thayne Elementary and Etna Elementary.
