Rainy Stretch Almost Breaks Record!

We’ve seen measurable rain every day since May 10th, and this nearly takes the cake (record wise)!

The following data has been put together by the National Weather Service Indianapolis:

Measurable rain (at least 0.01 inch) has fallen at the Indianapolis International Airport every day since May 10. This means there has been 12 consecutive days with measurable precipitation. For the Indianapolis Area, this is the second longest stretch of measurable precipitation. The record for most consecutive days of measurable precipitation is 13 days, which occurred in April 1893.

 Precipitation records for the Indianapolis Area go back to 1871. Below is a table of the longest stretches of measurable precipitation for the Indianapolis Area.
