CINCINNATI (AP) -- Cincinnati is headed toward its soggiest year ever, a record Cleveland has already broken.
National Weather Service meteorologist Steve Rhebenach (REH'-beh-nahk) says rain expected late Tuesday and early on Wednesday could push Cincinnati past its high mark for annual rainfall, the 57.58 inches that fell in 1990.
The Cincinnati Enquirer reports ( http://cin.ci/rn9pmA ) the city was less than a half-inch away on Monday.
This year's spring was declared the wettest ever for Cincinnati. Heavy rains led to flooding along the Ohio River that forced a riverside high school to relocate twice and prompted a racetrack to move horses away from the water.
Cleveland surpassed its yearly rainfall record last Wednesday.
