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).
