August in San Pancho, Mexico

This was an August much like most Augusts, with the exception of that heavy downpour mentioned in the previous post on this blog.

Here’s a graphical picture of when the rains came:

I must advise you that I’ve had several inquiries about our rainfall amount this month, which totaled just a bit over 12 inches. (It was 13 inches last August here.) One friend said that Puerto Vallarta experienced 35 inches of rain this month, another said there was 20 inches to the north of us.

Well, I can’t vouch for the source of that data, but the official weather station at the airport in Puerto Vallarta indicates 18 inches of rain there, so our 12.3 is certainly within the ballpark. Don’t know where the higher figure came from. If you do, please let me know.

The San Pancho rainfall for the year is more than 30 inches, while at this time last year we’d already recorded 50 inches. I guess we are all a little shaky that last year might be repeated here in our serene little village with a brand-new bridge.

Was it hot in August? Need you ask? We set the record for the year to date: 92.1 °F on August 18 at 10:28 AM. The highest temperature on record at the San Pancho Weather Station was 93.2 °F August 26, 2009 at 10:45 AM.



  1. Thanks mucho for this blog. Was wondering how much rain down there I was missing. Gotta get back to SP for September rains if possible. Stuck in hot and dry Spokane, Washington. Came back up here in April after seven months in Bucerias and SP………………….miss the peace and quiet there……….(If and when I get back down it will be trip number 55 since 1966)
