Wettest Autumn on Record in Dallas

16 Oct 2018, 7:14 pm

Heavy rainfall and widespread flooding have inundated the state of Texas this October.  In fact, many areas in the Lone Star State have had a very soggy autumn season.  For the Dallas area, 2018 will enter the record books as having the wettest autumn.  Just halfway through meteorological autumn (which runs from September 1st through November 30th), nearly two feet of rain was recorded at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport!

The exact total (as of 6pm Tuesday, October 16th) was 23.31 inches.  The previous wettest autumn season was in 2015 when 21.82 inches of rain was recorded.  Weather records in the Dallas area date back to the late 1890s.

Looking ahead, rain remains in Dallas’ forecast through the rest of the work week.  This will continue to add to an already wet autumn season.
