No state broke a record for driest October in 2012 according to the NOAA.

Texas came closest to a record with its 9th driest October at .83 inches. It will be hard to break the 1952 record of .02 inches.

New Mexico had very little rain during its 14th driest October. The record from 1952 was 0 so it can only be tied.

Delaware did break a record for wettest October ever.

15 states have 1952 as the driest October,  12 have 1963 and 6 are from 1924.

A rank of 1 = driest. A rank of 118 = wettest.
