A week’s worth of rain

The National Weather Service has produced a map showing how much rain fell over much of Kansas over the 7-day period ending Tuesday morning. Wichita recorded a little more than 3 inches at the official reporting site next to Mid-Continent Airport.


Other parts of the city saw much more than that and others much less – such was the isolated nature of some hard downpours.

Another .25 fell in a short period of time later on Tuesday, lifting Wichita’s rainfall for the month to 4.06 inches. At Jabara Airport in northeast Wichita, however, the total for May is just 3.32 inches.
