Heavy Rain Pattern Dates Back Almost 100 Years

September 9, 2010, 6:07 PM by Scot Mundt

Heavy Rain Pattern Dates Back Almost 100 Years
Just two-thirds of an inch of rain was enough to make this the 14th wettest year on record in Sioux Falls.  The total for the year is just less than 31.75  inches. 

All of the heavy rain has become a common occurrence over the past two decades, but the pattern also dates back to the early 1900s. 

Of the top 20 wettest years in Sioux Falls, seven have been fairly recent occurring over the past 20 years. But we've also saw a lot of water at the beginning of the 20th century.  Seven of the top 20 wettest years fall between 1901 and 1920, with six of those years in the top ten.

If it's a cyclical pattern, it might mean that our overly wet years in southern KELOLAND might be coming to an end. But only time will tell.
