Il. (KMOX) – Wet weather over the past two months is setting records in Illinois.
State climatologist Jim Angel says rainfall was above average statewide except for a small corner in the northeastern part of the state. Southern Illinois has received 12 to 15 inches more rain than average during the past two months.
“We had a little over 13 inches for those two months combined and that’s about 5 and a half inches above normal. It beats the old record set back in 1915,” says Angel.
