Top 5 Weather Events of 2011 across the North Country
Main 5 4 3 2 1

Honorable Mention: 2011 Record Rainfall at Burlington, Vermont
Each one of these individually noteworthy events contributed to yet another historical event; a record year for precipitation at Burlington International Airport (KBTV). Burlington received 50.92 inches of total precipitation, breaking the old record of 50.42 inches set back in 1998, and blowing away the yearly average precipitation of 36.82 inches. On the graph below, both the average and total precipitation are plotted, as well as each daily observation. Four out of the top five events can easily be seen on the graph, all contributing to this record year. And even though itís not specifically noted, the visibly large surplus in precipitation during the first half of the year over the region was the major facilitator for the other top event, the Lake Champlain flooding.
