And I wonder, still I wonder, who'll stop the rain?

Written By:  Scott Hetsko

July 2014 ended up 4th on Rochester's all time list for rain fall with 7.7" for the month.  But amazingly, when you combine that with June's number, we actually had LESS rain this Summer than June and July 2013.  It's important to note that these are Rochester number's from the airport and don't accurately represent the much heavier rain that has fallen throughout the Finger Lakes region.

Sorry about the blog lately, we'll ramp it up once the Winter season gets closer!

    I think the perception is driven by the type of rain events - last year, if I recall correctly, the rain came infrequently but when it arrive, it was the form of downpours. This year, the rain seems to be coming from longer duration events, though there certainly have been a fair share of heavy bouts of rain at times.

  2. It has been a wet wet summer. I wonder if this will translate into a snowy winter.

  3. Here is the first super early hint of how this winter might go down, courtesy of Brett Anderson:

    "Latest European model update indicates a challenging winter (stormy) from the Midwest to the U.S. East Coast."

    Of course I can't stress enough that this is based off of a seasonal prediction by only one model, and thus should be taken with a massive grain of salt.
