Storm Ends Reno’s Record Dry Stretch
Reno’s longest dry spell in at least 107 years ended when a storm dropped 0.19 inches of rain.
The 129-day dry spell before Saturday’s storm was the longest since record-keeping began in 1888.
“It’s great to see rain again,” said Scott Hickman, a National Weather Service meteorologist. “It’s been so long since it’s fallen that I almost forgot what it was like.”
Rain last fell in Reno on July 18, and that was only a trace. The previous record dry streak in Reno was 111 days set in 1954.
