CLEVELAND -- The rain fell for 16 consecutive days in Cleveland for the first time during the summer months since 1900.

A violent round of severe weather Wednesday evening swept away the rain and brought an end to a lengthy period of showers and thunderstorms that began in late June.

The National Weather Service says 7.17 inches of rain fell during the 16 days starting with a 2.41 inch deluge June 25th. Although the rain wasn't heavy every day, measurable precipitation was recorded during each of the 16 days at Cleveland Hopkins Airport.

The last time it rained for so many days during June, July and August was between June 17th and June 30th in 1928, although only 1.45 inches of rain was recorded during that stretch.

WKYC Chief Meteorologist Betsy Kling says we should have a few days to dry out before more humid conditions return to the area with an increasing chance of showers and thunderstorms early next week.
