How much did it rain overnight?

Were you awakened by the lightning, thunder and rain showers that moved through the Wichita metropolitan area early Wednesday morning? Some parts of the region received a hearty helping of moisture, as this map prepared by the National Weather Service indicates.

Officially, Wichita recorded about a half-inch of rain, but as you can tell from the map amounts varied widely across the region. That’s pretty common with thunderstorms, which can unload over a small geographic area as they pass and cycle through their life span.
