We got pegged with heavy rainfall Thursday afternoon from northern Mower County into Olmsted County. Reports in some locations vary from 3-5″ where the heaviest rain fell. None of the reporting stations were hit with the afternoon deluge except for a lock and dam station in Winona where nearly 6″ was reported! My personal rain gauge in Southeast Rochester had exactly 1″ in it, and we picked up 1.18″ here in Northwest Rochester. In between, anywhere from 1.50″ to 3″ fell in the time span of about 30-45 minutes, filling up Rochester’s streets, gullies, and intersections quickly and stalling out quite a few cars.

Here are 24 hour reported rainfall totals courtesy of the NWS La Crosse

    I watched some of the local weather stations via wunderground.com. Lots of them showed 3+” up in NW Rochester (Golf View Estates, for instance) in about 30 minutes.
