BALTIMORE — Rain seemed relentless at times during 2018.

The official 2018 yearly rainfall total came in at 71.82". This ranks as the wettest year on record in Baltimore. It shattered the old record from 2003 of 62.66".

The 2018 total is 29.94" above what we would normally receive in a calendar year.

Here's to hoping that 2019 is much drier and calmer than the previous year.
