Rainy commute adds to overnight precipitation

Sporadic bouts of heavy rain are soaking the morning commute in the Wichita metropolitan area.

As of 7 a.m., more than half an inch of rain – .57 of an inch, to be precise – had been recorded in west Wichita at the official recording site next to Mid-Continent Airport since midnight, according to the National Weather Service.

Added to the .17 that fell on Wednesday, that brings the total to .74. These fresh rounds of rain will increase that total, however.
