How 2019's rainfall is measuring up

It seems like that's all we've been talking about recently in the Doppler 10 Weather Center: rain.

We're only three months into the year and we're already more than a month-and-a-half ahead of where we should be when it comes to precipitation. The near 2" of rain we got on Saturday shattered the record set back in 1987.

So far this year, we've gotten just under 14" of precipitation, normally we're at just over 8". On April 1, 2018, we got 10.7", and 2018 was the wettest year on record.

The forecast calls for some drier weather to start the week and the precipitation outlook for April 2019 isn't hinting at wetter or drier than average weather. But the April, May and June outlook is leaning towards wetter-than-average conditions.

10TV will keep you posted on-air and online, but one thing is certain: we're getting closer to what is statistically the wettest time of year, so keep the umbrella handy.
