October Rainfall Already More Than September

October 11, 2017

For most mesonet stations, the first five days of October have seen more rain than the entire month of September – only Maple Grove had more rain in September. This recent rain was mainly due to a slow moving system that brought a lot of moisture into Minnesota. The highest recorded rainfall total for October so far is in Hanover, MN, at 3.70 inches. The image below shows the total rainfall from October 1st to October 6th.
