NWSJ confirms Juneau broke its all-time yearly precipitation record

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - Juneau broke its all-time yearly precip record Wednesday morning.

    Brian Bezenek, a meteorologist with National Weather Service Juneau, gave details on Juneau's new rain record.

    "We broke the record this morning. At 2 am, we passed the record. The old record was 85.15 inches which was set in 1991. And as of about 8 am this morning, we were at 85.31 inches. It's continued to rain through the day and it looks like we're still probably getting some precip for the rest of the month. So we're not entirely sure how far we're going to extend the record, but we have surpassed the annual record from 1991."

    An update will be released at the end of the year of the total inches from 2022's record year.
