From one weather extreme to another
PRINCETON — Following the 2012 drought season, the 2013 year looks to be anything but dry.
According to Illinois State Climatologist James Angel, the statewide average precipitation for 2012 was 30.37 inches, which was 9.83 inches below normal and the 10th driest year on record in Illinois. So far this year, all but March have experienced above average precipitation numbers for the first six months of 2013, Angel said.
In fact, April was recorded as the fourth wettest April on record, and May was recorded as the 12th wettest May, Angel said. Though this past June was not record-breaking, the month did receive rainfall which was above the state average.
