April 13, 2012

March was a very wet lion

April 11, 2012

Though the phrase is “In like a lion, out like a lamb,” there was nothing docile about the month of March’s exit, as significant rainfall broke records in the Colville Valley.
As of Saturday, March 31, the area had received 4.25 inches of rain for the month of March, exceeding the old record of 3.55 inches in 1987.
“It’s a weather occurrence of note, but it is that time of year,” says Meteorologist John Livingston of the National Weather Service Office in Spokane. “We had a dry winter for the 2011-2012 season and it looks like the wet weather is just starting to kick in.”
