Record Breaking Rainfall over the Past Two Years

29 03 2012

As we continue to see a drying trend across our area, the record shows that the past two years ending February 2012 was the wettest on record. The total for the period March 2010 to February 2012 was 129.80 inches; the previous highest was 129.72 inches recorded over the period March 1951 to February 1953; this was 59 years ago. The normal rainfall for this period is 93.88 inches. Recall that prior to the past very wet period, we had a serious drought during the second half of 2009 through early 2010. We may be heading into another Meteorological Drought over the next few months.
