Record Rainfall This Year? 2011 Keeps Climbing Up The List!

Since January 1st, the greater Hartford area has received 58.28” of precipitation. That makes this year the 6th wettest on record! And records date back to 1905!

If we just get “average” precipitation in November (4.06”) and December (3.6”) we’ll beat the #1 wettest year on record!
