Washington, DC Approaches Precipitation Record

With the paltry 0.03" of rain and snow showers which fell at National Airport this morning, February's total to date is a mere 0.26". Since only a 50% chance of showers is forecast on Friday, there's a good shot at breaking the record for driest February since records began in 1871. If no further precipitation falls this month, the new record will also be drier than that of any other calendar month except March, April, September, October, and December. The last time so little precipitation fell in Washington was when a new record of 0.05" was set in March, 2006.
