Finally, we are about to get a break from the rain this weekend, and we could use it.  It has rained every Saturday around metro Detroit since September, and it's already the wettest fall since 2001 (currently the 13th wettest on record).

We already have 1.5 inches of rain in November, and we've had 6.46 inches of rain in September and 3.56 inches in October. That brings our fall rain total to 11.52 inches. The record for rain in fall (September, October and November) is 13.74 inches from 1881. The number 2 spot belongs to 2001, when we had 13.39 inches of rain.

Seasonal data from fall is kept from September through November, so if we receive another 2.22 inches of rain in the next 28 days, 2018 will be the wettest fall on record.

So get out this weekend, rake the leaves, or enjoy the nice dry weather!
