Soggy Situation

The remnants of Lee continue to plague Virginia and the east coast with excessive amounts of rainfall. Flooding remains a concern for the remainder of the work week.

Rain has been falling across Virginia since Monday and the totals have already been staggering. Here's a preliminary list of some of the rainfall totals that have been relayed to us - many of them by our weather watchers!

All of these totals are as of 6:00 pm Tuesday:

Redfields: 4.22"
Free Union: 4.30"
Kidds Store: 4.50"
Madison: 4.84"
Boyd Tavern: 6.25"
Ruritan Lake: 6.28"
Rockfish River area: 6.30"
Glenmore: 7.00"
Esmont: ~7.50"
Woodridge: ~6.00 - 8.00"

Some of these rainfall totals are estimated because many of you woke up to overflowing rain gauges on Tuesday morning! In many cases, the rainfall totals that have already been picked up exceed the amount of rain we would expect to receive in the entire month of September! Obviously with the forecast calling for the possibility of a few more inches of rain, this situation may not get better immediately. Wednesday will bring more periods of rain and thunderstorms, but Thursday and Friday will bring lighter amounts of rain. Skies will begin to clear on Saturday and we should start the weekend off on a dry note! Rivers will likely remain very high through the weekend and flooding will continue to occur, especially in low-lying areas that are typically prone to flooding.

If you'd like to add your rainfall totals to this list, leave your total and town as a comment at the bottom of this blog!

Until next time,
