Charleston, West Virginia has seen way more rain than the ground there can handle. And it's already set a new monthly record. With several days still left in the month, Charleston has set its wettest September on record - by a long shot. Through mid-afternoon on Tuesday, Charleston had seen over nine inches of rainfall, making it its wettest September by over a full inch. It started with over three inches of rain on September 1st, and a couple other rounds of heavy rainfall have moved through the region over the last few weeks, including four separate days with at least an inch of rainfall apiece. There's more rain in the forecast, too, well, for at least one more day. Wednesday has more showers and thunderstorms around for the Charleston area, with perhaps another half inch to an inch of rain possible. That said, a drier forecast - finally - is in store for the end of the week and into next weekend.  Stay with WeatherNation for the latest on all of the wet weather across the Midwest and East Coast.
