Finally -- Rain

Finally, some much need rain has fallen across our area. As of 9pm, 1.15 inches of rain has fallen at my station. That's the most rainfall in a 24 hour period since June 12, 2010 when 3.78 inches of rain fell.
This radar estimate shows that a band across Franklin county received up to 1.5 inches of rain. It appears that up to 2 inches fell in Henry county (the yellow area).
Had we been just a bit later in the season, I believe this would have been an awesome snowstorm. The track of the low was perfect for heavy snow in our area since it moved up the Ohio river towards Wheeling, West Virginia. Maybe we'll see more tracks like this over the winter and get much more snow. At a 10:1 ratio, we would have nearly 12 inches of snow on the ground. :-D
From what I'm reading on a couple of forums I watch, we might be in store for another wet storm around the 24th or 25th of November. This storm may bring in some colder air with it, possibly leading to our first accumulating snowfall of the season.
