2018 will be remembered in the record books. A wild weather year in Greensboro can now officially be called the wettest on record, and with more than a week to spare.

Our latest round of heavy rain on Thursday and Friday pushed our rain total well over 62". The old record for most rain in a calendar year was 62.32" set back in 2003. For reference, our average yearly rainfall is just 40".

There have been so many major weather events this year. Hurricane Florence and Hurricane Michael both dumped nearly half a foot of rain across our area this fall. More recently, our early-season winter storm dumped 12" of snow that equaled 2" of liquid. 

With more than 1 week to go, our record is likely to continue to widen it's lead. More heavy rain could be on the way for Thursday and Friday of next week.
