May's starting out pretty wet for Wichita

After the second-soggiest April in the city’s history, May hasn’t given Wichita much of a chance to dry out just yet.

Only 3 of May’s first 10 days were dry, according to National Weather Service data.

The rainfall total for May, 2.19 inches, is already more than an inch above normal for the month - and several more chances for rain are in the immediate forecast.

Wichita has recorded 14.85 inches of rain so far this year, which is 6.53 inches above normal.
