PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Saying 2019 has been a soggy year would be the understatement of the year.
This year, precipitation has been relentless. Of the 160 days we have experienced, so far of 2019 (at the time this article was written), 116 of those had a trace or more of precipitation.READ MORE: Ross Township To Rename Park For Legendary Wrestler Bruno Sammartino
That means a whopping 72.5% of the year has come with precipitation. In fact, it has rained so much, that we have only been able to string together a maximum of three dry days in a row.
*This also includes the frozen version of rain…aka snow.

That has only happened twice. Once in early May, then again at the end of last week.
Believe it, or not, we haven’t seen as much precipitation by this time last year.
Last year, by now, we had 22.28” of precipitation. This year, we have had 19.45”. That is still 3.06” ABOVE average.MORE NEWS: Valencia Community Gives Boy Battling Cancer A First Responders Birthday Parade
