Impressive Two Month Rain Totals

Rainfall this week was impressive and, as Tom pointed out in the previous post, record breaking.

August and September have been extremely wet with the remnants of Irene and Lee being big contributors. The September 22 deluge was not related to any storm remnant. It just came from a tropical airmass. In combination, the August-September rain totals are impressive.

The rainfall on September 22 was a record breaker at BWI-Marshall but many areas exceeded the airport measurement. Below are reports from the National Weather Service on rain totals at different locations around the area.
