Vancouver has wettest October on record

first_imgIn the Pacific Northwest, rainy weather is a fact of life, but last month’s precipitation will go down in the record books. The National Weather Service measured 8.22 inches of rainfall at Pearson Field — making it the wettest October on record and well above the historic average.Based on the 30-year average, 1980 to 2010,  the city typically gets about 3.24 inches of rain during October. Previously, Vancouver’s rainiest October was in 1997, when 7.37 inches of rain fell. The third-rainiest October was in 1955 with 7.25 inches. Except for a wet Oct. 13, most days brought a half inch or less of rain.“We’ve had a pretty active period in the tropics, particularly in the western Pacific, that may have injected a fair amount of moisture into the jet stream,” said Jon Bonk, a meteorologist at the weather service. “We didn’t have very much variation in our weather pattern. The storm track was aimed at the Pacific Northwest for the month of October.”last_img read more
