Quote:Roseburg had record rainfall on Monday, for the 2nd straight day.
Data from the National Weather Service said the Roseburg Regional Airport measured .92 inches of rain between 12:00 a.m. Monday and 12:00 a.m. Tuesday. That beat the old record for the date which was .55 inches set in 1972. Between Sunday and Monday Roseburg had 1.98 inches of rain which was also a record amount.
Medford also set a record on Monday with .82 inches reported in the same time period. That doubled the previous record of .41 inches, set in 1995.

Pffffft, is that all??!

Grants Pass has had 3.98 inches of rain since 7 a.m.Friday 4/5/19

 They have not let as much water out of lost creek reservoir sine the 1997 flood. And if it keeps raining they will have to let even more out.
We could be in serious trouble. The dam when full may as well not even be there and it's at 98% full right now Surprised . And it's damn close to being full  PI Razz

I heard that as well, about the reservoir releasing as much as 97. Hopefully the continuing showers will be sporadic enough that the reservoir wont fill beyond their means to release.

Yep, hopefully.   The corps have to guess when they start allowing the lake to fill and how much. I think they do the best they can.
I have had a conversation with a guy on FB who is bashing them. But basically according to typical FBers no one ever does ANYTHING right. EVERY gov branch is corrupt or stupid or mismanaged. Rolling Eyes

Records have been shattered in Alaska. Scotland hit 70 degrees in February. Winter warmth has torched the U.K., Netherlands and Sweden as well — coming on the heels of Europe’s warmest year on record.

Quote:The heavy rain overnight ended before the morning commute started, but not before setting records for Las Vegas.
Thunderstorms with lightning and gusty winds flashed across the valley as the rain poured from the sky.
Rain totals ranged between a half-inch to nearly 1 inch of rain and even more outside of the valley near Boulder City and northwest of town along U.S. 95. Officially, Las Vegas saw record rainfall of .71 inches which brings the annual total to 4.71 for the year.

The previous record for May 16 was 93, set in 1944 and 1939.
Another warm day is on tap Friday with highs approaching 90 in Omaha, but the cold front that has been the spark for these storms is dropping south.
