If you think the rainfall in April has been more than normal, you’re right.
Global News meteorologist Mark Madryga has had a chance to crunch the numbers.
“Well, rainfall has been exceptionally high this month so far. Of course, we had one of the wettest March (months) on record and the dullest, and we’ve continued that trend into April. We’re at 125 millimetres so far at the Vancouver Airport. Normal up to this time is just 67 millimetres so we’re way ahead. So far this month, Stanley Park 150 millimetres, 121 in White Rock, 173 in West Vancouver.”
As for the wettest month on record?
“172 mm in 1996, followed by 143 mm in 1981 and 140 mm in 2003, so we’re not in the top three wettest Aprils yet, but we’re aimed in that direction for sure.”
April rainfall totals are significantly above the long term average. Will likely end in top three wettest
