All it took was 9.15 inches to make this summer the wettest on record since 1969.

According to the Capital Weather Gang:

In Washington, the monthly rainfall ended up an impressive 9.15 inches, the equivalent of an average three-month supply. It was easily wetter than any other July since the 1969, when 9.44 inches fell.

2017 is the only year since 2000 to feature a top-10 wettest July.

Wettest on Record

Not only was July wet, but it was also hot. The CWG reports July 2017 was the fifth warmest July since 2000 and it makes 2017, year-to-date, the second warmest year since 2000.

Nice.
