Already the 35th-wettest year on record for B'more
FROM TODAY'S PRINT EDITIONS:
This year already ranks as the 35th wettest on record for Baltimore. With three months to go, 2011 could still challenge the all-time annual precipitation record of 62.66 inches, set in 2003.
NWS meteorologist Jared Klein, in Sterling, Va., says we would need to average 5.47 inches a month, October through December, to break the record. That’s only happened twice before, in 1932 (16.79 inches), and 2009 (19.24 inches).
But just 6.07 inches total would put us in the Top 10.
