June Deluge

Incredible rains since June 21st, spanning less than one week’s time, have inundated Rockford and the Stateline region.  At Chicago Rockford International Airport, 5.59 inches of rain has fallen since that date.  Rainfall totals were locally higher in some backyards across the metro area.

With just a few days left (and a few more chances of rain left), June 2013 can already claim the 13th wettest June on record in Rockford!  As of this blog post, 6.89 inches of rain were observed during June 2013 in the Forest City.  Records began in Rockford in 1906.

June is statistically the wettest month and on average sees 4.65 inches of rain.  Last year was a different story.  June 2012 was the 3rd driest on record in Rockford, with a measly 0.66 inches of rain.
