Rainless streak ends


Baker City's third longest run without rain ended Sunday morning.

Between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. the National Weather Service's automated rain gauge measured .01 of an inch of rain at the Baker City Airport.

That's the minimum amount of rain that's officially "measurable" by the Weather Service's standards.

A trace of rain has fallen at the airport on several days during the 70-day "dry" spell, but the last measurable rain, before today, fell on July 14.

The longest stretch without measurable rain, of 79 days, happened in 1987 (Aug. 14 through Oct. 31).

The runner up was a 72-day period in 1999 (Aug. 15 through Oct. 25).
