Much Needed Rain FINALLY Arrives

Yesterday brought the areas first widespread significant precipitation in nearly a month with many areas receiving close to an inch of rainfall thanks to the showers and storms.

In July we enjoyed a healthy surplus of precipitation ending the month in the positive more than 5 inches compared to normal. August has not been as nice though, as we continue to sit in a healthy deficit that has at times neared 3 inches. Currently we are now under about two and a quarter inches. As you can see from above, rainfall in August has come in small amounts with yesterday being the largest.

There is some good news on the rain front in that we have more chances for showers and storms not only today but tomorrow as well. These will continue to be scattered in nature but should provide some beneficial rains to those that see them.

Some humidity will work back into the area again today and Tuesday before this storm system moves far enough off to the east that we warm up and dry out on Wednesday. Temperatures look to return to more summer-like values into the middle and later half of the week.
