(Hebron, Ky.) – You don’t need to tell tri-state residents that 2011 has been one wet year, but they might be interested to hear it has been one of the region’s wettest ever.
Just over 3.75 inches of rain fell at the Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky International Airport during Monday morning, according to the National Weather Service in Wilmington, Ohio. That brings the year’s total to 54.16 inches, the second wettest year ever in Cincinnati.
With three months still to go in the year, it is very possible it could be the wettest ever. The all-time mark was set at 57.78 inches in 1990.
Monday’s rain brought anywhere from two to four inches in many parts of the Eagle 99.3 listening area.
In a 24 hour period ending at 8:00 a.m. Monday, Markland Dam in Switzerland County recorded 3.35 inches, Rising Sun had 3.22, and Farmers Retreat had 2.33. Burlington and Hebron in northern Kentucky saw 4.07 and 4.02 inches, respectively.
