The New Orleans area is on track to smash a soggy record.

According to the National Weather Service, the area is less than two inches of rain away from logging the wettest summer since recordings started at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport in 1947.

As of Wednesday, the airport has recorded 31.54 inches of rain since June 1, already making it the fifth-wettest summer on record.

The summer of 2012 holds the record with 33.38 inches of rain. 

The second-wettest summer on record is 1978 (32.84 inches); the third-wettest is 2001 (32 inches); the fourth-wettest is 1991 (31.72 inches).

With Tropical Depression Harvey meandering in the Gulf of Mexico, it's possible the area will see several inches of rain accumulate over the weekend and into next week.

The NWS' summer records run from June 1-Aug. 31.
