PITTSBURGH - UPDATE: The National Weather Service in Pittsburgh said the rainfall was incorrectly totaled due to technical problems at the observation site.
Need to correct a tweet sent earlier today. Due to technical problems at the observation site, the rainfall for today was incorrectly totaled. A review of the rainfall showed 1.12 inches of rain fell today. That puts us just short of the record 1.15 inches for the day. Our bad.— NWS Pittsburgh (@NWSPittsburgh) October 8, 2019
In a Tweet they said, "A review of the rainfall showed 1.12 inches of rain fell today. That puts us just short of the record 1.15 inches for the day. Our bad."
How wet has it been this year? Wet enough to wash away a nearly 150-year-old rainfall record over the last 24 hours.
Through 2:30pm, Pittsburgh has recorded 1.28" of rainfall today, which breaks the calendar day record of 1.15" of precipitation set in 1872. #MoreWaterRecords— NWS Pittsburgh (@NWSPittsburgh) October 7, 2019
