Weather questions answered

Wondering how much it’s rained in the last several days? There are ways to find out.

You can dip a finger in the dog bowls and bald tires strewn across your neighbor’s front yard, or, for more scientific reference, you might visit the state climate office’s Web site.

The office maintains a database of weather records reaching all the way back to the 1940s, and it’s easily searched. Along with recent data, the site posts weather averages for the state by locality, including annual rainfall, monthly temperatures, etc.
