Rainfall Totals and Expected Totals

April 26, 2011 1 Comment

What a nasty turn of events for us in our weather picture over the past 24 hours!  While it certainly could be worse–we don’t have tornadoes or heavy snow in the region, thankfully–but it absolutely could be better.  We’ve gone from sunny skies and highs in the lower 60s Monday afternoon to dreary, cool, damp weather today with temperatures in the 40s and things won’t be improving any time soon, unfortunately.  The storm system that is creating this wet and gloomy scene is slowly going to move out tomorrow, but clouds and chances for scattered light rain showers will remain in the area for the next two days.  Totals today may end up reaching one to two inches locally while the next couple days will likely only yield a tenth to a quarter of an inch at most with hit-and-miss showers common in the forecast picture.  Here’s a look at how much rain has fallen in our area since last evening:
