Rain and Temperature Data for 2018

Last year I posted the rain and temperature data for 2017, our first full year here in the northwest. That data can be found here.

The 2018 data is listed below. Overall, we had less rain in 2018 than in 2017 and it was slightly warmer in 2018. The average rainfall for Hansville is 33″ per year. For more detail on the rain shadow effect in the area, refer to last year’s post.

Total precipitation recorded at the weather station for 2018 was 30.31 inches. This is low due to the station going off-line a few times during the year and not recording. However, it is in the ballpark and it looks as though we were slightly under the yearly average for 2018.

  • Hottest Day: 88.5º on Jun 18th
  • Coldest Day: 25.2º on Feb 23rd
  • Highest Wind Gust: 23 mph on Jan 29th, Feb 25th, Apr 7th, and Nov 3rd
