November Rainfall Update

We already know that Richmond International Airport has recorded the wettest November on record (see previous blog entry), but we've continued to add to that rainfall tally yesterday and early Wednesday morning. As of 7 a.m., November 2009 at RIC has 8.11" of rainfall. We've surpassed the old record-holder of 1959 by about half an inch! That's pretty significant for breaking a record. And, there's still that persistent drizzle this morning, which will keep adding to that monthly total.

So where do we stand for the year?

Year-to-date precip: 38.67" (through 7 a.m. Wednesday)
That's -1.52" departure from normal for year-to-date precipitation.
