24 hour rainfall ending Tuesday morning

Map of rainfall for the 24 hours ending 7 am CDT June 21, 2011

You can make your own custom map, including options for multiple-day precipitation or different locations, using the Precip Analysis page.

Observation Methods for the above map:

River Forecast Centers derive the "Observed" precipitation field using a multisensor approach. Hourly precipitation estimates from WSR-88D NEXRAD are compared to ground rainfall gauge reports, and a bias (correction factor) is calculated and applied to the radar field. The radar and gauge fields are combined into a "multisensor field", which is quality controlled on an hourly basis. In areas where there is limited or no radar coverage, satellite precipitation estimates (SPE) can be incorporated into this multisensor field. The SPE can also be biased against rain gauge reports.
