Pretty Normal for precipitation. Temperature not so much. A couple mornings of hard freezes at my location this past week. The freezes will contribute to more dead vegetation which will be fuel for fires if precipitation doesn't stay on average...

January 14-20, 2018: 0.67 total inches rain, most occurring on Thursday/Friday. Light rain with a few snow showers on Tuesday but very little snow and no accumulations on the valley floor. An all-time record breaking daily high temp. of 58° F in the afernoon January 18th (Thursday)-- a warm front ahead of colder/wet Thursday evening/night. Some trees are shedding leaf caps. Some greening of cottonwoods. Grass is green, very early bulbs are showing green leaf growth. Pollen allergy symptoms since the middle of last week-- very early for winter pollen problems to begin. Flu is nationally at peak epidemic numbers. Anna's hummingbird still at the feeders each day.

First three weeks of January have given us but 0.42" precipitation. Most of the recent snow cover is gone and bare ground will be a combination of faded green and dark brown. Rain is forecast and since the turf is not frozen deep, little run-off should occur. Any water we get will be beneficial for the coming growing season

1.5" snowpack has mostly melted this week with only snow piles and shady spots left to melt. Grass and most other plants are dormant, which is normal for this time of year. This past week has been colder than normal, so the furnace has been running much more frequently than normal to heat our house.

This week the powdery precipitation made conditions wetter. Business and industry establishments operated fewer hours/days due to closings. Some stores that were able to open operated with limited goods and services due to the wintry precipitation (short staff, power outages, delivery issues, leaks, etc.)A few problems with gas and electric energy were encountered as well. Some standing water was observed in the riparian zone and isolated street/sidewalk sub optimal drainage locations but the creek did not overflow and water level remained low. Plants and animals observed this week include hawks and buzzards. I observed many vacant dwellings of the order Hymenoptera although I did not see any flying insects. Wasp nests and mud dauber tubes are common in eaves under porches and hollow cylindrical surfaces (air vents, ditch drains, etc) on public and commercial buildings ranging in diameter from several feet wide to a few inches. In passing by some agricultural districts this week I saw cattle grazing, heard rooster crowing, and saw short grass growing on many of the row crop fields. A few residents participated in recreational sledding, but many recreational opportunities were cancelled this week. The governor declared a "state of emergency" during the wintry precipitation.  
1/20/2018  OH-HM-24 OHHamilton Moderately Wet Plants & Wildlife
Soil is wet but frozen so soil moisture condition is essentially unchanged. New liquid precipitation 0.23 in past 7 days with 4.7 inches of new snow. 4 inches of snow on the ground this morning.

Precipitation totaled .24 this week, but today melting snow will saturate the ground. The thawing then freezing has made surfaces slick in general. Car doors have frozen shut and the windows in our house also froze shut.

While a large part of the state is slipping into drought the soil remains noticeably moist here as noted in mulched beds and turf areas. Vegetation, though, is very dry. A couple of warm and windy days expected so fire danger is elevated. Single digit lows earlier in the week resulted in numerous water main breaks and frozen pipe incidents, especially bad when fire sprinkler systems burst (several of those reported.) Hoping for rain ahead of the next CoFro tomorrow but going to enjoy running around in a tshirt today! Have noted many people enjoying being outdoors for a change. Get it while you can!

Even though the rain from the last few days has moved us here in the valleys closer to normal, the mountain snowpack is still dismal. Hopefully the remainder of winter and spring will be wet.

We've hed 1.56" in the last 9 days, including trace snow. Prior to that we had 0.15"from 12/22 to 1/11. It's been exceptionally cold, so I'm thinking evaporation has to be very slow.  
1/20/2018  TX-BND-55 TXBandera Moderately Dry The moisture we received during the winter storm earlier this week mostly sublimated and was of no particular benefit. Further the .02" of light rain we have received the last two days have also not been of any benefit insofar as putting a meaningful dent in the dryness of everything. Ground is hard and cracked. Plants dormant, but deer (whitetail and Axis) have been very active last couple of days, supposing that they were hunkered down during the coldest and windiest of the days during the storm. Most are probably on the move to the river for water. Medina River USGS gauge at Patterson Street in Medina is at 4.65 ft this morning, unchanged from this time last week.

another week of temperature extremes - from 70 one day to 22 and then back to 70. had belpw freezing temp for over a 24 hour period this week. all water troughs had ice on top. and froze waterlines in to house. had freezing rain one morning. any tender vegetation left took another hit this week. had around 1” of slow rain this week so it soaked in to the ground, still have muddy conditions and puddled water today. with recent freezes and high winds fire danger from dead standing range grasses has dramatically increased. winter grasses looking good, just growing slow.

The FoxMill Weather Station temperature-compensated soil moisture readings at the 3 and 5 inch levels are 24 and 21 centibars respectively in Buckhall silty clay loam with 3.7% fine gravel/particulates and 3¾ inch mowed dense fescue overcover where the ground sensors are located. Ground temps at the same depths are 33°F and 34°F. Soil moisture education note: Barring a torrential downpour resulting in standing water, the soil moisture levels at 3 & 5 inches in the station’s Buckhall clay will lag rainfall by 12 - 24 hours due to the fescue moisture uptake and slow percolation in the clay soil. Levels at 8 & 16 inches are relatively stable. A total of 0.04 inch of melted snow recorded in the past seven days since the last Condition Monitoring Report was submitted. Weekly evapotranspiration (ETo) total was 0.19 inch resulting in a 0.15 inch ground moisture deficit. FoxMill recorded 0.4 inch of snow this week with a measured SWE (Snow Water Equivalent) of 0.04 inch. As can be readily seen, the snow density was 10%. For the intellectually curious, the density of new snow ranges from about 5% when the air temperature is 14° F, to about 20% when the temperature is 32° F. Right in line with what would be expected, the outside air temperature during the hours of this small snowfall ranged between 22 - 25°F. Ground temps were above freezing at all depths during this snowfall so there was no discernible runoff as the small amount of snow melted on Thursday and immediately soaked in. Seasonal snowfall thus far amounts to 3.7 inches. This morning’s weighted soil-moisture reading puts us right in the middle of the “Near Normal” range as defined by CoCoRaHS. January cumulative totals: precip 0.84 inch; ETo 0.46 inch resulting in a monthly ground moisture surfeit of 0.38 inch at FoxMill which correlates nicely (high R^2) with the observed soil moisture readings after accounting for the last precipitation type, weighted rate of fall, amount, duration, surface water runoff, ground temperatures, ETo and the previous 30 day rolling measured data. FoxMill Weather Station (VA-PW-13) provides detailed ground moisture information (including evapotranspiration plus multi-depth soil temperature and moisture readings) on a *daily* basis in the CoCoRaHS Daily Precipitation Report ”Observation Notes" section which is updated at 6 a.m. by the duty observer. Data reported by: observer2 (ampersat) foxmill.us at FoxMill Weather Station, Saturday, 20 January 2018.
