Record Rain


Shannon O'DonnellIt’s not just your imagination–it HAS been a terribly soggy month of March. So much so, that it will likely go down in the record books as our wettest March ever. Not just in terms of rain totals (most of us have seen several inches of rainfall this month already), but in terms of NUMBER OF DAYS of rainfall.

For instance, San Francisco has seen 22 days of rainfall this month so far, and we’ll likely make that 24 or 25 days by the end of the month on Friday. The old record for ‘number of days of rain’ for March in the City by the Bay was 23 days, set back in 1904. We should easily tie that Wednesday, and surpass it with the next storm coming in Thursday night and Friday morning.

And no foolin’…Saturday, the first of April, looks a bit wet as well. We’ll be glad to see this March go; hopefully April will finally bring us some sunshine instead of spring showers!
