...A VERY WET JULY ACROSS SOUTHEAST OHIO AND NORTHERN WEST
VIRGINIA...

The month of July could best be characterized as warm and
unsettled. Water tables ran high for much of the month across
southeast Ohio and northern West Virginia, where monthly rainfall
totals generally ranged from 8 to 10 inches. Clarksburg
experienced its 2nd wettest month on record, while Parkersburg
experienced its 4th wettest. Interestingly enough, no major river
flooding was observed and only isolated instances of flash
flooding. Locations throughout southern West Virginia, however,
experienced a month in stark contrast to their neighbors to the
north. A deficit of 1 to 2 inches for monthly rainfall was
observed for many in those areas.

Despite the wet grounds across southeast Ohio and northern West
Virginia, temperatures still managed to average slightly above
normal, joining the remainder of the region with yet another month
of above average temperatures.

Below is a summary of Top 10 monthly rainfall across the area.

Clarksburg: 10.34 inches (2nd wettest on record). This was 4.69
inches above average.

Parkersburg: 8.82 inches (4th wettest on record). This was 4.61
inches above average.
