2018 will be second-wettest on record in Dallas-Fort Worth

2018 is set to be the second-wettest on record after storms moved through North Texas on Wednesday.

This year’s total is now officially 55.51 inches at DFW Airport, aided in large part by a record amount of rainfall in September (12.69 inches) and October (15.66 inches).

We’re not going to pass the all-time annual rainfall record of 62.21 inches, which was set just three years ago in 2015.

2018 was third all-time until Wednesday, when 2.45 inches of rain was recorded at DFW and another .24 inches fell after midnight pushed 2018 into second place.
