So far 2015, can be described as a year of both droughts and floods.
The year started in a drought. The months of January through April were the driest on record in many parts of the state.
But in May the weather took a turn with more rain, lots more rain.
Melissa Smith is a Hydrologist with the National Weather Service.
She says in an average year, the Rapid City Regional Airport gets about 16 inches of precipitation.
She says the rainfall over the last two months alone is approaching that number.
