In March we have an average 4.99 inches of rain, and we just hit the 9 inch rainfall mark. 2 inches of rain fell just yesterday. Don't know if you've experienced that kind of rainfall, that equates to hard rain all day & night. The flow from our downspout gutter, looked more like a fire hydrant gushing, yesterday.
* Rain will be increasing tonight as a warm front lifts north across the region. Will continue today through early Saturday. Rainfall totals since Thursday have generally been 1 to 2 inches for the inland valleys...and 3 to 7 inches in the higher terrain. Another 1 to 3 inches of rainfall are expected tonight and Saturday...with the heaviest amounts in the Oregon Coast Range to the foothills of the Oregon Cascades.
With extremely saturated soils from recent rains...if these winds
develop...they could be strong enough to cause some local tree
damage and power disruptions.
You know it's bad when you need a riverboat
to navigate your driveway!
(Not my house, although we do have a "lake"
accumulating at the end of the driveway!)
