    Coming off of the wettest September on record, October is now the wettest on record. So far this month we have received 14.51 inches of rain. That's 11.31 inches above normal.

    This year we have picked up 49.91 inches. We are 21.45 inches above normal for the year. This is not a record breaking total. Right now we are ranked the 7th in wettest years.

    Even though the weekend will be dry, more rain is possible next week. Extended models have another round of rain moving through on Halloween, next Wednesday. Stay tuned for timing and specifics on rain amounts.
