Record breaking rainfall to start off the month of October

It's only the first week of October and we've already shattered records.  From October 2nd through October 3rd, we received 3.83 inches of rain, breaking the two day October rainfall record for South Bend.  This breaks the previous record of 3.77 inches set back in October of 1988.  

With this rainfall, we are propelled to 0.51 inches over the normal amount of precipitation for the entire month of October, and we still have three weeks left in the month.  

Not only have we shattered rainfall records, but we've also shattered the record low maximum temperature for October 4th.  We shattered the record of 48° that's been in the record books since 1935 by a mere two degrees.
