Rainfall Event 10/13-10/14

Beneficial rains fell this past weekend! 

A strong storm system moved through the Midwest over the weekend dumping much needed rain.  Widespread amounts of 1 to 3 inches were reported, with a few locations picking up nearly 4 inches of rain.  Despite this much rainfall, area tributary rivers showed little response, as much of the rain soaked into the ground due to the antecedent dry conditions.  Below is a radar loop of the event (left) and the weekend total rainfall (right).
