PM Update (Sunday): An additional 0.08" of accumulation from showers overnight pushed the March total to 1.97", and the 2-month total to 2.32". If no more precipitation falls through Tuesday, the old February-March record will have held by a mere 0.03", and 2009 will be firmly in second place.
With another half inch of rain recorded so far today, the Washington, DC total for the month of March to date is now 1.89". This puts the February-March total at 2.24", slightly below the record low amount of 2.29" in 1947. With more showers likely tonight and Sunday, the record will almost certainly remain intact.
