Louisiana ends 2010 with an unusually dry December. State Climatologist Barry Keim says we'll end the year with some rain, but up until now we've only received about 15-percent of what is considered normal December rainfall for Louisiana. Keim says the year 2010 has earned a place in the state's weather history, because of the lack of rain. Keim says total rainfall for 2010 so far is 40.7 inches. The annual average is over 57 inches. He says that make this the 4th-dryest year in recorded Louisiana weather history. (The dryest: 1924 with 37 inches, followed by 1917, then 1954, then 2010.)
