July was wettest on record for Juneau, says weather service

The National Weather Service says this July was the wettest on record for Juneau.

The Alaska Dispatch News reports that the weather service announced Saturday that it recorded 10.4 inches of rainfall at Juneau International Airport last month.

Until now, July 1997 was considered the wettest July in Alaska’s capital city. The weather service says 10.36 inches of rain fell that year.

Anchorage only saw 2.34 inches of rain last month. Its wettest July on record was in 2001, with 4.49 inches of rainfall.

The weather service recorded 2.78 inches of rain in Fairbanks this July. The record for that city was set in 2003, with 5.96 inches.
