Rain Totals Today…A Nice Soaking

September 24, 2014

Portland received .70″ of rain out of our little “storm”.  Looks like the metro area was all between 1/2″ and 1″.

Heavier totals of right around an inch in the valley and higher than that in some spots in the Cascades

By the way, this isn’t the start of the rainy season here…that’s typically around Halloween.  But the chance of getting rain on any one day now is significantly higher than it was in mid-summer.

In an average year, November and December are the wettest months with the rain totals trailing off from mid-winter through spring.
