A wet year
Last May, the Limestone area received 2.79 inches of rainfall. That amount ballooned this year to 6.60 inches, according to the National Weather Service in Huntsville.
Another noticeable variance can be found with July. In 2012, 6.14 inches of rainfall was reported for the month, the weather service said. As of Monday, 7.33 inches had been reported.
Limestone may experience more precipitation this week, as there is a 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorm activity in the forecast for today through Friday.
