Just 7 days in... and this March is now the Rainiest in Recorded History in St. John's!

The 45 mm of Rain that fell on the 1st got us started... and the 118 mm of Rain from our weekend storm more than sealed the deal. This month St. John's has already seen 180.6 mm of Rain at the Airport.


Looking back to when record keeping began in 1942... the Rainiest March title was being held by the March of 1983 when 168.2 mm of Rain fell. So we're already well passed that with still 23 days to go.

By the way.. the normal March rainfall in St. John's is 76.7 mm.

More Records Fall

-The St. John's March 5th Daily Rainfall Record was 23 mm... the 71 mm on Friday shattered that.
-In fact the 71 mm of Rain on Friday also broke the single day rainfall record for all of March. The previous record was 67.5 mm on March 11th 1994.
-Gander's 37 cm of Snow on Friday also broke the March 5th record of 24.4 cm which fell in 1960.
