    One Final Note: Wednesday's rainfall in Charleston pushed the monthly precipitation total to 7.81". While that is certainly a lot of rain to have in just one month, it is not even close to finishing in the top ten wettest months of July. To even get to tenth place on the list, it would take getting all the way up to a whopping 8.44"!
