North Coast Rainfall Records Continue to Be Broken This Week
Today, we had record breaking rainfall on Woodley Island in Eureka. So far 1.05 inches fell and the previous record was only .99 set way back in 1914, according to the folks at the National Weather Service in Eureka. We wonder how much more will fall today!
The Weather Service also tells us that on Thursday, Crescent City had 5.19 inches of precipitation which obliterated the old record of 1.34 inches set in 2009.
Eureka also broke it’s old record that day. It had 1.71 and broke the previous record of 1.09 also set in 2009.
In fact, both Crescent City and Eureka had so much rain on Thursday alone they came close to or exceeded previous averages for the entire month. (See graphic below.)Del Norte folks say they’ve never seen so much rain as they have today. We wonder if another record will be broken there today.
