Binghamton's Record Rainfall

Posted: 10 Sep 2011 06:15 AM

The east coast has been hit very hard by extreme rainfalls from tropical storms. Binghamton, New York set their all time record one day rainfall on Wednesday of 7.49 inches. The featured chart shows the one minute interval rainfall data from the observation site there. A similar chart to this was generated for the other daily records set this year for Dubuque, Chicago, and New York City. There is a very big difference shown by this plot with peak hourly rates in the one to two inches per hour range as compared with double or triple that in the other plots.

Good = 13
Bad = 6
