The numbers are in for the month of December, and the Napoleon Waste Water plant recorded 2.94 inches of precipitation last month.   That’s about two-tenths of an inch below normal for the final month of the year.   Usually there is snow to add to that total; but that was lacking as well.

But for the year, 2018 was a very wet 12-month period in Henry County, with 43.46 inches of precipitation.   That’s about 5.6 inches above a normal year in northwest Ohio.   Helping boost that total was a whopping 7.2 inches of rain during the month of August.   That followed a July with 1.17 inches of precipitation.
