Rainfall Amounts Overnight Through 10 AM August 31, 2010

The map below shows that rainfall amounts across the area this morning varied widely from little or none southeast of a line from Sioux City Iowa to Lakefield Minnesota, to between two and four inches at many locations between Letcher South Dakota and Minneota Minnesota. There were also some reports around two inches in and near Sioux Falls South Dakota. These heavy rains pushed more sites into the top five ranks for rainfall on record during the meteorological summer, while only adding more havoc to towns that have already tallied more rainfall than ever.Rainfall Overnight August 30-31, 2010
