Could be wettest February

Print Article

Sounds like a symphony of rainsticks out there.

For good reason.

Coeur d’Alene could break its record for most precipitation in February.

Since Feb. 1, Coeur d’Alene had received 4.76 inches of precipitation, Press meteorologist Randy Mann said Thursday afternoon. He said that could increase to 5 inches by the time you read this story.

“The all-time record is 6.49 inches set in 1940,” Mann said. “If we get another inch and a half of moisture, we’ll do it.”

Mann said the Lake City got more than one and a half inches of rain Wednesday night through Thursday.

“It’s a lot,” Mann said. “But it’s not a record [for most precipitation on Feb. 16.]

As of 4 p.m. Thursday, Mann said the storm had spit out 1.56 inches of rain, and it was still coming down.

Moving into the weekend, Mann said there could be a small break from the rain later in the day today, but starting late tonight, Coeur d’Alene will see a mix of rain and snow, on and off, throughout the weekend.

Even more precipitation is expected next week, but “I don’t think it will be as intense as this week,” Mann said.
