Dry October, Wet November?

October 4, 2010, 5:24 PM by Scot Mundt

Dry October, Wet November?
While we've gone more than two weeks without rain in Sioux Falls, that doesn't mean we'll hold on to this type of weather through the winter.

To further explain, I looked at what happened in 1993, when Sioux Falls set the record for the wettest year. It gave Sioux Falls a dry October with only two-thirds of an inch of rain. But we ended the year with an inch and a half in November and a third of an inch in December giving Sioux Falls a record total of 36.11 inches of precipitation for the year. 

By comparison, Sioux Falls is currently ranked as having the fourth wettest year on record with 35.34 inches. That's more than what we had through September in 1993. 

Of course, it was cold enough to turn the rain into snow for the last two months of 1993 and we ended up with just under ten inches of snow in November and close to four and a half in December. But you'll have to wait for my winter snowfall prediction until early November.
