Wet + Wet + Wet Wichita

Wichita has experienced the wettest three consecutive years in its history. Courtesy of the National Weather Service in Wichita, here are the statistics:

1) 2007-2009: 129.25 Inches
2) 1949-1951: 119.52 Inches
3) 1997-1999: 117.15 Inches

And, we may receive an additional few hundredths before 2010 gets here.

Wichita is not the only city that has been wet.  St. Louis may set or be very close to a similar record.

UPDATED on New Year's Eve:  Looks like 129.32" will be the final value because of the light snow that occurred between the original posting and the end of the year.  We are not expecting any additional precipitation between now and midnight.
