The Flathead Beacon reports that torrential rainfall swept the valley in October, from Kalispell to Glacier National Park, with precipitation levels surpassing 100-year records. Last month was the wettest month on record in West Glacier. The weather station inside Glacier National Park recorded 10.6 inches, the most of any single month since weather data has been collected in the park starting in 1914. The previous precipitation record was 9.48 inches, set in December of 1917. Data collection at that time was done monthly and subject to error. Read the full story here.
