Ask Joe – Are we getting more downpours?

Weather

Linda wanted to know if we are truly getting more flooding downpours nowadays. The answer is simply, yes. Many of our longer term observation locations have shown and increase in days with over an inch of rain in a single day.

One of the reasons for this increase has been an increase in moisture in the air, and that’s due to an increase in water temperatures off the East Coast and in the Gulf of Mexico.
