How much rain will Eugene get - and will it set any records?

EUGENE, Ore. - How much rain will Oregon see from a trio of storms forecast to come ashore this last weekend of September?


More than last year, when a tenth of an inch of rain fell in all of September. That happened in the time it took you to read this sentence.


So will Eugene set a record for the soggiest September?


The all-time record for the month dates back nearly a century, when 5.21 inches of rain fell in September 1927.


By Friday night, the first 27 days of September had put more than 3 inches in the rain gauge - already triple the average rainfall for a September in Eugene.


This soggy september may have saved the best for last:weekend storms hold the potential to double that total before October arrives.


If 4 inches of rain drain from the sky over Eugene this weekend as some forecasts suggest, 2013 will "rain" supreme, a record-pace dry year surprised by a soggy fall.


Or maybe: soggiest of all.
