Record-breaking rainfall was a story of 2018.

Charleston broke its 2003 record of 61 inches of rain by more than five inches.

Yeager Airport in the capital city measured 66.56 inches of rain on the final day of the calendar year.

2018 broke the yearly record for rainfall for a lot of places in the state while one month broke the monthly record.

September in Charleston was the wettest on record by far with 11 inches of rain.

February also brought heavy rain in the middle of last winter, as bodies of water across the state flooded.

A May flash flood with about 5 inches within hours caused damage in the greater Millstone area of Calhoun, and high water reached record levels at the Upper West Fork Park, during serious damage.

The end of 2018 is ending with more showers and unseasonably warm temperatures as New Year's Eve saw temperatures around the state hit 60 degrees and above and New Year's Day into the 50s.
