Soaking Rains In Louisiana, Florida

As of 9 am MT Tuesday, the top CoCoRaHS report for Monday went to the observer 0.9 NNW of Labadieville, Louisiana -- with a whopping 4.33 inches of rain from a thunderstorm.

The observer described the lightning as intense and close along with some flooding.

There were also some heavy rain reports in Florida with a few locations pulling in over 3 inches of rainfall.

We sure could use that here in the Mile High City!! So far this year we are nearly 6 inches behind normal, making it the 4th driest year on record to date.

11 observers filed intense rain reports on Monday, from Georgia, Florida, Virginia, Texas, Louisiana and Maryland.

  1. This may not be your area of expertise, but could you explain what is meant by a fire being x% contained? These kinds of statements on the news have always been perplexing to me. Also, water in the west is scarce. Where are they getting all the fresh water to pour on the fires?
