Heavy Monday Rainfall



Some bands of strong thunderstorms rolled through the area during the afternoon and evening.  With the high humidity levels, these storms had a lot of water to work with.

A corridor of heavy rain stretched from greater Toledo southwestward into Putnam and Defiance counties.  Areas shaded in orange picked up 2 to 3 inches of rain (there were even some isolated higher totals).  There was another smaller band of heavier rain in northern Williams county.

Elsewhere, areas shaded in the yellows received between 1 and 2 inches of rain.  Areas in green picked up between 1/2 and 1 inch of rain.
