Our late September storm was as fierce as advertised.  Weekend rain totals at PDX reached 2.69 inches, setting daily rainfall records for both Saturday and Sunday.  As of midnight Sunday night, the airport had 5.06 inches of September rain, which breaks the old PDX all-time record of 4.30 inches, set back in 1986.  The following is a list of new all-time Sept. rainfall records.  The totals are accurate as of Sunday evening, courtesy of the National Weather Service: 

Astoria Sept. 2013:  10.10 inches (old record 8.66 - 1906)

Hillsboro Sept. 2013:  5.75 inches (old record 3.68 - 1945)

Portland Downtown, KGW Sept. 2013:  6.21 inches (old record 5.52 - 1927

Salem Sept.  2013:  5.81 inches (old record 5.52 - 1927)
