Boone Breaks Record For Wettest Year (2018-12-31 16:09:57)

2018 has been the wettest year on record in Boone.

High Country Press reports that as of last Friday, Boone had nearly 90 inches of rain on the year, which beats the previous record of 83 inches of rain in 1979.

According to the report, after rainfall totals are officially calculated for the year, most other towns in western North Carolina are expected to break their records as well.

The already wet year was pushed over the top with the biggest doses of rain coming from Hurricane Florence and Hurricane Michael in September and October.
