Now That's A Lot of Rain!

Rainfall recorded at the Dubuque Regional Airport totals over ten inches in less than 24 hours! With thunderstorms beginning at 7PM yesterday, the rain barely let up for more than a few minutes at a time.

According to forecasters from the Quad Cities National Weather Service, the current rain totals have exceeded daily records and resulted in a new all time wettest July record for that region.

And it doesn't stop there. Areas of convection and low level convergence are likely to bring even more rain into the region before things finally taper off and move on tomorrow and into the weekend.

Stay Dry Iowans!
