A month and a half (plus some change) left to go in 2019, and we’re already in the positive in precipitation. This is hard to believe considering we had an entire month with no measurable precipitation. Still, we’re nearly a tenth of an inch above our yearly normal, and we still have over 6 weeks left to collect.

September was the driest month so far this year. In fact, September was the driest month on record picking up no measurable precipitation. The wettest month so far this year was October, totaling 7.83.” This is also shocking, considering the first five days were bone dry and part of the 39-day dry stretch that lasted from the end of August through Early October. Five of the 12 months so far have had precipitation totals above monthly normal.
