It’s never ceases to amaze me how we can go from one side of the spectrum to the other around here when it comes to weather. It’ll be 90 one day and the next we’re struggling to hit 60 degrees.

We need rain, or at least we will soon.
Take a look at the graphic to the right. This outlines some details about our current situation.
As of July 15th, we only had 0.33″ of rain at the Johnstown – Cambria County Airport. That’s over 2 inches below normal. Our last half-inch rainfall came on May 24th and the last time we had over an inch of rain in a single day was March 23rd.
