October was Very Wet, But No Record

NOVEMBER 2, 2004 - Posted at 4:21 p.m. CDT


LITTLE ROCK, AR - October was very, very wet in Arkansas, but we don't have a new record.

The National Weather Service says the rainfall total for the month in the Little Rock area was 11.46 inches, not as much as the 14.03 inches recorded there in 1984.

Over the past 30 years, normal October rainfall for central Arkansas is 3.81 inches.

If the month had 32 days, or a storm system had moved more quickly, some records might have been set since October ended during a storm system.

October's rainfall totals were the second-most ever recorded in several parts of the state, the weather service said, but not a record anywhere.
