April 15-21, 2018: a trace more than 0.24 in. precip occurring overnight 4/15-16/2018. Otherwise a few very brief sprinkles or graupel as storms moved through the valley. A few mornings early in the week with snow on the foothills nearly to the valley floor but melting to about 5,500 ft by afternoon. Windy and gusting with the storms. Many trees have leaves, apples and other landscape or fruit trees are in full blossom. 10°F nights in late winter (after a warm January) froze upper branches on fruit trees which now have no leaves or blossoms. A few nights at about 32°F but warming at the end of the week to upper 30's and 40's. Days warming through the week to upper 50's and 60's. Lawns are being mowed and some light garden watering needed. Frogs/toads were singing at night last weekend but not since. A few bees, bumblebees, and butterflies have been seen on the flowers and flowering shrubs. Mid-range tulips are up and blooming. Instantaneous flow at Boise River at Glenwood gage has decreased over the week to 2,380 cfs this morning. Reservoirs in the upper Boise River basin are 79-89% full.

This last week saw us move from a delayed spring into normal spring days. I received 0.07 inches moisture from a mix of cold rain showers and snow at the start of the week and ending with sunshine. Our farmers are starting to work in the fields and weather permitting this week will be very busy. My pond is overflowing a little which is very normal and our local creeks are also normal. Life on the pond continues with Mrs. Goose sitting tight on her nest.

The annual pond in the yard that arrives with the spring melt off each year has come and gone this last week. Usually it's around a bit longer than this, usually I am dealing with a very muddy Yellow Lab for a couple of weeks. The ground is wet enough that another rain storm or, heaven forbid, snow storm will melt into a pond again. As I drive around I am seeing signs of summer businesses getting kayaks, canoes and bikes ready for summer use. Yard work business are starting to advertise,but the ground is too wet here to work yet. The plant pots on the deck have thawed out, and there are tiny bits of green at the bases of the chives, so they are waking up. The crocuses along the south side of the house bloomed and dropped the blooms in the last sleet storm.

We had both rain and snow this past week but we also had temps that finally warmed up and acted spring like. The maples are starting to bud out, the lilacs are finally leafing out and some later spring flowers are starting to appear. Birds are very active with lots of song. Squirrels and chipmunks out and about. It might be spring, finally.

Needing rain. we are on the edge of the drought range. many early plants and Dogwood blooms seem to be stressed due to little moisture and late frosts. This has been a very cold late spring season with a few records set. Fire danger is high and there is a lot of brush in the woods. The creek is lowering and soil is dry on the surface. Hummingbirds have arrived on the 19th this season.

All of the earthworms seen in isolated dense populations on the sidewalk last week were dry and shriveled. At commercial developments in all four corners of the intersection of SR 1613 & SR 3014 I saw migratory waterfowl last week. I weighed and measured 20 of the closest dry pine cones Wednesday that were average 0.6 ounces (range 0.2 to 1.0 ounce) and 3 to 5 inches long. Some curbs and grates are affected by heaps and piles of the small dry pine pollen husks (1/8 inch diameter, 1 to 2 inches long). Very Little standing water seen at the end of the week except puddles 1.5 inch deep remained Friday at the sharp bend in the creek that was flooded with water more than 20 inches above ground level during the weekend storm more than 5 days ago. Society and public health: a group of young persons in bathing suits was observed swimming in the creek Sunday a few hours before the flood. The dog and I heard a large/heavy snake slithering away in the dry leaves and only saw the dark colored thick posterior section as it quickly moved deeper into the woods. I saw swarms of gnats by the creek and one or two small butterflies/moths mosquitoes and bees in the wildflowers and surrounding grassy areas.

On 4/14 area fields planted with winter wheat and cover crops were lush and green, and we saw gulls eagerly feeding on one freshly plowed field. Most area fields have not been plowed. We got just over 1.5 in. of rain this week, along with some snow. On 4/16 I saw a little water standing in fields as I drove South from Norwalk to N. Fairfield, but nothing major. By 4/19 there were tiny leaves on the crabapple at last, and the maple was redder with its tiny leaves. The Spring Beauty is still a cluster of pink blooms, and the lungwort, too, seems unbothered by the snow and cold. On 4/21 my husband mowed the lawn for the first time, and I dug out some grass and dandelions from under the crabapple tree. Hosta are poking through the soil now. I am seeing more purple finches, yellow finches and mourning doves at the bird feeder, but haven’t seen any woodpeckers at the suet balls lately. We have a lot of robins in the area.

Switching from Mildly (reported for some time now) to Moderately dry this week. Apart from the .08" of rain overnight (reported 4/21), we have been precipitation free since the last Condition Monitoring Report. Mild (even cool) temperatures have spared us the baked and parched appearance that one might expect with the lack of moisture. This week, I dug some holes by hand to plant some small trees. Soil is dry even down a foot or more, so our situation is not just a matter of surface dryness. Medina River USGS gauge at Patterson Street is at 4.31 ft. this morning versus 4.38 ft. this time last week.

Dry conditions continue to worsen and this is the first week rated 'Severely Dry'. A shower of .13 inches early this morning was the most significant precipitation since .40 inches on March 28. We are at less than 50% normal for the year. Vegetation is showing stress and lawns are turning brown. Even with today's precipitation, soil moisture readings were only 3.8 - mildly moist.

The FoxMill Weather Station temperature-compensated soil moisture readings at the 3 and 5 inch levels are 16 and 12 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 52°F and 52°F. Soil moisture education note: Barring a torrential downpour resulting in standing field water, the soil moisture levels at 3 & 5 inches in the station’s Buckhall clay will lag rainfall by 12 - 30 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 1.89 inch of precipitation recorded in the past seven days since the last Condition Monitoring Report was submitted. Weekly evapotranspiration (ETo) total was 0.74 inch resulting in a 1.15 inch ground moisture surfeit. Last Sunday night through mid-morning Monday saw widely varying rainfall amounts throughout the northern portion of the Commonwealth. Here at the FoxMill Station, we recorded 1.83 inch of rain including one short period when the commercial calibration-certified piezoelectric rain gauge registered an average rainfall rate downburst of 3.533 inches/hour. But amazingly, the storm runoff was much lower than we expected…meaning a good percentage of the rain was absorbed by the vegetation and by the ground which had reached the “Moderately Dry” category on Saturday. Well maintained residential lawns in the area have all been mowed at least twice and chemical burn-down spraying of corn fields in preparation for no-till planting is well underway. The well-drained soils dried out enough to permit no-till planting to start yesterday. Farmers are in the fields aggressively this weekend to beat the inch (plus) of rain expected Tuesday night. We should note that the unusually cool spring weather thus far has curtailed pasture growth a bit. And we are seeing a foliage blooming delay and the amphibians are late coming out of hibernation. 2017 - 2018 seasonal snowfall amounted to 9.3 inches. This will be the last snowfall seasonal report until the fall. This morning’s weighted soil-moisture reading puts us in the very upper end of the “Mildly Wet” range as defined by CoCoRaHS. The soil around the FoxMill Station is a mere 0.4 centibars from sliding into the “Near Normal” category. April cumulative totals: precip 1.98 inch; ETo 2.12 inch resulting in a monthly ground moisture deficit of 0.14 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, 21 April 2018.

Grass is growing and the trees are budding. A fine spring with rain most days this past week. Deer and Elk have been visiting and eating the new grass. Saw my first campers two days ago and RV'ers(early snowbirds) are starting to arrive. Ground is wet from overnight rain and is slow to dry out when the sun shines.

The first half of April was notably wetter than normal, which re-saturated/inundated many hollows and depressions across the landscapes. Cool first half of April; kept wood stove burning from April 1-20th, and finally let it burn out yesterday. My gauge location is in a bit of a cold pocket, and vegetation sprouting and leaf-out is running about 10 days to 21+ days behind typical schedule (depending on the plant species). One example is that big-leaf maple has only just broken bud here (no blooming yet), where a half-mile in either direction of house, the maples are leafing out and blooming. Even had some very light, patchy frost on April 19th. Have cut the lawn once so far this spring; grass growth has been slow. Warmer temps are forecasted this coming week, which may really jump-start plant growth.

The first 3 weeks of April my area received 4.10" of needed moisture, to bring us to near normal on surface moisture, Since a week ago Friday, Mother Nature has thrown just about everything she has at us. Friday the 13th morning was the start of wild weather before completely ending 80 hrs later. Friday started out with thunderstorms where an inch of pea sized hail covered the ground, changing to rain, to inches of sleet, freezing rain and snow, with winds to 40 plus MPH. This storm dumped a lot of snow north of me from 15 to 30". There was a 24 hr break, and and another storm dumped 7.5" of heavy wet snow. It is melting fast with the warm April sun, Things are slow to green up, so there is still a threat of wild fires when things dry out. There is ponding in the fields, and it is now muddy. The ditches, sloughs have come up, as well as the Baraboo River. Also it looks like we may have broken out of a very long stretch of below normal temps. Everyone is ready for warmer weather.

A decent amount of precipitation this period has softened things up. Snow and ice has melted nearly completely once again leaving the top layer soggy. With just about the entire months amount of moisture in one 5 day storm things are near normal. Although it didn't compare to the storm twenty years ago it did hold some historicalness to it with the most icing and length of sleet accumulation this observe has seen in his life.
