The tallest mountain in New England is known for its snow-capped peak, but it was heavy rainfall that had hikers talking in July.
New Hampshire’s Mount Washington set a record for rainfall in July with 43.38 centimeters (17.1 inches) of precipitation for the month, the Mount Washington Observatory reported.
Heavy rainfall was recorded across the region.
Vermont, which dealt with serious flooding across the state, saw several records broken.
It was the wettest month on record in Montpelier, which recorded 30.63 centimeters (12.1 inches) of rain, and the wettest July on record in Rutland, which had 18.84 centimeters (7.4 inches) of rain, said Adriana Kremer, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Burlington.
In Massachusetts, it was the second-wettest July on record in Boston and Worcester, officials said. There was heavier-than-normal rainfall in Maine and New Hampshire but no top 10 rain totals, officials said.
