So far this summer there has been very little precipitation in Barnstable County. Our Barnstable County Farm weather station has recorded 0.53 inches of precipitation in August as of Aug. 26, 0.75 inches of precipitation in July and 1.59 inches in June. The lack of precipitation and periods of hot, dry, windy weather have contributed to very low soil moisture levels and according to the US Drought Monitor our area is currently in a moderate drought, with some areas of southeastern MA in severe drought.
