Record Rain Monday & More Is Coming

It’s the middle of January and well into winter, yet I’m talking about a record rain event to kick off our week.

After an icy start Monday morning, we picked up 0.86″ of rain in the Quad Cities.  That was a record amount of rain for January 16th.

It was also more rain than we saw for the entire month last January.  We only picked up 0.44″ of rain (and melted snow) in January 2016.

It was also the most rain in one day in the Quad Cities in three months.  On October 6, 2016, we recorded 1.10″ of rain.

We have another system coming in Thursday night and Friday with rain and more rain is expected by Sunday.
