RECORD RAIN: Asheville breaks all-time May rainfall record

Posted: Updated:

A daily record 2.92 inches of rain fell at the Asheville Regional Airport on Friday putting them at 9.41 inches for the month of May.

This in turn broke the all-time May rainfall record of 9.18 inches, which was previously set in 2009.

While this alone is impressive, this record was broken in only 18 of the 31 days of the month, and we still have many more chances for rain in the week ahead which will make that number go even higher.
