This probably won’t be a shock to too many people. Between April 1 and yesterday, we have received almost double the amount of rain we normally get. Yesterday was a record-breaker. According to Environment Canada senior climatologist Dave Phillips, there was a recorded 40.6 mm of rain yesterday. That beats the record of 34.3 mm from 1953. This month, we have had 232 mm of rain, compared to 125 mm on average. So far this year, two thirds of all of the days have had precipitation. That makes the first five months of 2017 the wettest on record.
