Since there isn’t a lot going on right now with the weather I’ll quickly note that yesterday we saw 0.05” of rain at the airport.

Which puts our monthly total rain at 2.97”. Pittsburgh averages 3.3” of rain for the month of September so we have seen a big portion of that total already with today just being the 10th day in.

Big September rain totals to start the month has started to become more normal with us seeing at least 2.9” of rain over the first 10 days in 3 of the last 4 years.

This is the 7th wettest start to September on record with 3 of the top 7 occurring over the past 4 years.
