County's Rainfall Continues To Be Plentiful In 2012

East Tennessee has experienced a "wet fall," said Rob Ellis, director of the University of Tennessee AgResearch and Education Center.

Rainfall has been above average for the past two months, according to data collected by the UT Ag Center, located on East Allens Bridge Road.

Rainfall in October was .4 inches more than the average monthly total while September rainfall was two-plus inches above the monthly average.

"Adequate moisture has allowed for pasture regrowth," Ellis said in an interview on Monday.

The more extensive rainfall is not because of Superstorm Sandy, which devastated the East Coast near the end of October.

Ellis said the storm did not have the impact locally that had been predicted.

Rainfall for the days following Superstorm Sandy barely exceeded one-tenth of an inch for each day, Ellis said.

However, a cold front did send temperatures plummeting from a high of 80 on Oct. 27 to a high of 39 on Oct. 31, dropping over 40 degrees in four days.

The first 10 months of 2012 have brought in 1.49 inches above the average rainfall from Jan. 1 through Oct. 31.

The total is not a significant deviation, according to Ellis.

East Tennessee has evaded the drought which has hit large portions of the state and nation this year, Ellis said.

As of Monday, November rainfall stands at .39 inches. The monthly average rainfall for November over the years is three inches.
