Heavy Rain Expected!

The 1-3 Day Quantitative Precipitation Forecast says it all for the next three days. Several rounds of thunderstorms are expected through Tuesday bringing with it the threat of heavy rain and some strong to severe storms.

Currently, at the mid-month point, we are sitting at 2.44". With a monthly average of 3.87", we may end up with a surplus this month. I don't mind much because it helps with the water bill, but this area has been hit with some moderate flooding this year, and some flood plains could use a rest I'm sure.

I'll update with any storm/heavy rain reports as they happen.

By the looks of it this morning, you all are getting soaked!

You're not kidding. I work a summer job at a college here in Fulton, and we do a lot of work outside (moving furnature, etc). I am soaked to the bone right now while on my lunch break.

We've had some close lightning strikes here as well. I'm going to run home and eat. I'll find out how much rain we've had and post if I can get on the computer again.

1.30" from 6:00 a.m. to noon. 1.45" storm total since the rain began this morning.

My 3-day total is 2.77". Not nearly as much as others around here!
