As noted, our precipitation totals since Aug. 1 transcend the concept of "extreme."
The running tally at Philadelphia International Airport for the 52 days stands at 28.87 inches, or within a half-inch of the amount of precipitation during the entire calendar year in 1922.
The rainfall since Aug. 1 is more than quadruple the normal total, which would be 6.5 inches.
Now it appears that another assault of significant rain is on the way. Showers are possible from now until Tuesday, with the heftier rain due on Friday.
