SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- It was a very wet October -- and a very welcome one.
Precipitation totals for the month in parts of Utah were near record levels. That could be good news for the state's drought-stricken reservoirs if the heavy snow continues. And it's already great news for the state's ski resorts.
According to the National Weather Service, the Salt Lake Valley had the fourth-highest precipitation totals for the month of October.
As of yesterday, Salt Lake City's precipitation total for October was 3-point-48 inches, less than a half-inch shy of the record set in 1981.
