Soggy Sunday, More Rain Midweek

It was a bit of a soggy Easter Sunday with rain developing in the early afternoon and lasting through about dinner time. It was a colder lighter rain, but we didn't pick up much, only 0.15" in Rockford. The highest total was near Monroe at 0.25".

                                                                      Another system arriving midweek will bring more rain across the Midwest. A developing low in the plains will allow for rain to spread east into Missouri, Iowa, Wisconsin, and Illinois. Another 0.50" inch is possible with showers and even a few thunderstorms on Wednesday afternoon.

In terms of rain totals for the month, we're actually above average. So far this March we've actually seen a wetter pattern allowing for our monthly totals to be about an inch and a quarter above average. Our monthly average is 1.95" but so far we've received 3.22" inches.

With rain arriving midweek we look to end the month close to 1.5" above average.
