This month is already Baltimore's fifth-wettest June on record

There is just more than a week left in the month, but it is already Baltimore's fifth-wettest June on record, with more than 8 inches of rain.

Saturday night's storms added about 2 inches of rain to the tally at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, the point of record for Baltimore since 1950. That brought the monthly rain gauge there to 8.27 inches.

That is two-hundredths of an inch more than in June 1920, previously the fifth-wettest June on record here. It is the wettest June here since 1972, which was the record wettest June with 9.95 inches of rain.

It is Baltimore's wettest month since 8.6 inches fell last April, causing a portion of East 26th Street to collapse in Charles Village.
