Philadelphia Sets Record For Annual Rain

It has been raining and pouring, and this year's rain has been one for the record books, at least in Philadelphia.  Read the great posting at The rain total in Philadelphia has exceeded 62 inches, breaking a record set in 1867.  Average annual rain fall in Philadelphia is 40 inches.

Jeff Masters calculated that 56% of the USA has either experienced extreme drought or extreme rain in 2011. 

Global warming scientists have stated that dry areas will likely get drier and wet areas wetter, as a warming climate impacts evaporation and precipitation.
