Year-To-Date Rain Has Now Topped The Yearly Average

Nearly two decades have passed since Greeneville has been quite this waterlogged.

Data from the National Weather Service in Morristown indicate a year-to-date total of 44.41 inches of precipitation in Greeneville, which is a record for this point in the year.

The next highest year-to-date total was 38.77 inches, set in 1994, according to Meteorologist Jessica Winton.

"If [the rainfall] is not breaking records, it's really, really close to doing that at most of the stations across Tennessee," Winton said.

A soaking thunderstorm on Friday evening pushed the year-to-date rainfall total past the entire year's average rainfall, according to the University of Tennessee's AgResearch and Education Center at Greeneville.

The center, located off East Allens Bridge Road, is the county's official rainfall data station.

By 7 a.m. Saturday, the station recorded 1.15 inches of rain for the preceding 24 hours, with another 0.22 inch falling by Sunday morning at 7.

That puts the total for the month at 7.67 inches, well above July's average of 4.73 inches.

Year-to-date, Greene County is 17.29 inches above average.

So far this year, the center has recorded a total 45.75 inches. That's 1.47 inches above the entire year's average rainfall.

Today and tomorrow should give Greeneville a bit of a break from the rain, according to Winton.

But more may come with a front that will move through Wednesday afternoon to around Thursday at lunch-time, she added.

"Friday looks to be pretty good, pretty decent for a dry day," she said.

Unfortunately, there's another front expected this weekend, she added.
