Dang, the rain gauge is overflowing! We sure got a Texas-sized amount of rain last night. Anyone know how much?

Cheers! M2

Our 5" rain gauge was full, but I don't think anyone emptied it out after the heavy rain we had a few Sundays back...

We were down in Floresville earlier today, got poured on there but it doesn't appear that the NW side of town got much more once we got back. Still, it was a great rain and hopefully it will put a dent in our drought conditions!

Cheers! M2

Anyone know what the rain totals were for SA International Airport. We are on holiday in Europe and excited for SA getting rain. We live in Castle Hills hoping we got some.

The Express-News reports in today's paper that the total rainfall at San Antonio International Airport for the 24-hour period ending at 5pm Saturday was 0.63", with 7.31" total for the month of September.

The rain that fell during the most recent rain event in San Antonio would have been predominantly between 5pm Friday and 5pm Saturday.

Not sure where you read S.A. recd 0.63 but SA International Airport recd 2-3 in a 24-hour period.

From mysa.com:
In the San Antonio area, Live Oak received 3.5 inches during the same 24-hour period. The San Antonio International Airport reported between 2 and 3 inches of rain. The hardest hit parts of the area were expected to end up with little more than 4 inches.

The .63 was for Saturday, the rest happened on Friday. Those 24-hour period numbers have an arbitrary start/end time, probably 5pm Friday to 5pm Saturday.
