Portland has wettest year ever

Portland has wettest year ever

Thursday's steady rain and drizzle put 2005 into the record book as the wettest year ever for the Portland area.

An 8 p.m. reading of the rain gauge at the Portland International Jetport showed that the combined precipitation for the year had reached 66.41 inches, 0.08 of an inch more than the total recorded in 1983, the previous record holder.

The precipitation this year was about 20 inches more than average, and was largely attributable to two rainstorms, in April and October. More than 14 inches of rain fell during October alone, making it the third wettest month on record.
