Kraujalis says 4.1 inches fell on Tuesday, making it Duluth’s second-wettest calendar day. The daily record is 5.2 inches on July 21, 1909. On Wednesday, 3.1 inches fell. Together, that breaks the previous two-day record of nearly 6.7 inches that fell on July 20-21, 1909.
Residents beleaguered by flooding are welcoming clear skies Thursday, with the next good chance of rain on Saturday.
