With this morning's 1.14" of rainfall in Rochester, we've crossed the 40" plateau for rain/snow melt equivalent precipitation for the year. That's the fastest we've ever made it to 40" ever.
As of early afternoon on September 11th, 2019, we're sitting at 40.59" of precipitation on the year. That' the most we've ever seen on this date in history besting the previous record of 39.56" in 1990.
That 40.59" for 2019 is good for #9 wettest year ever if the year ended today. With 3 1/2 months left we can easily jump towards that top mark set back in 1990 with 43.93" of rain. The forecast tonight and Thursday should easily give us a jumpstart on that process.
