I give it an hour and a half.  I have a 4:00 tee time so it better be done by then! :fulltilt:

Did you get golf in?  Still misting and drizzle at times here.

Ended up with 3.02” in two empties of the Stratus throughout the event.  Has to be the largest precipitation event for here in a long time.  This image was before today’s showers and not comparable to my total (taken after todays rain).

Maybe another half inch with the FROPA later in the week… probably going to be the wettest week of the year, ha.

We did. It was touch and go with rain on 89 and down the hill towards Northfield but it stopped by the time we teed of just after 4:00. I had .53” today, bringing me up to 2.40” since Sunday.

GWDLT. Rainy seasons in VT are brutal. And there’s 2. Spring and fall 

What was different between this and the 2-3 days of rain in CT only two weeks ago?

It was a pretty humid, convective rain too, yesterday was a series of t-storms.  Honestly seemed pretty similar.

We had been one of the drier zones despite over the last 6 weeks, so it was needed rain.  Despite a high number of days with measurable water.

All I know is after a few months of no widespread big precipitation events, there have been two now in the past 3 weeks.  One in SNE, one in NNE.  Both multi-day events.  That’s some pattern change indicators.

Only around 0.15 here today after sunrise.  Just an all day drizzle and mist that would occasionally hit -RN.  It looked like areas southeast and southwest of here blossomed nicely with the  ULL.

52-55F area wide in NW New England., with dews equal to temps… it’s still not fall/autumn cold even after the cold front.

Got another .04" yesterday, so added onto the .92" Monday and .05" on Sunday, I had just over and inch. (1.01").

It was great to see the wife and kids in person again...almost brings me to tears seeing how palpable the change in the children was in just 2.5 months.

Wow....time flies, and if you blink, they grow up-

Nah.  One around a mile from me.  Mine is a cheap useless one. I have no faith in it

FWIW from an amateur, I wouldnt trust many of the home rain gauges to give you accurate readings. Most of them are not adequate and/or set up in properly. I dont even trust my own weather station rain gauge, which is why using stratus as a back up, preferably a large diameter or multiple, is needed to eliminate error IMO.

I agree.  Most of them aren't all that accurate.  Stratus is more accurate.

Seems like there is an issue at KLWM.....rain total seems "light"..

Between my tipper on the weather station and the stratus gauge, It can be off a few cents depending on rainfall rates and it seems like the tipper under catches often, So i always rely on the stratus as long as i don't forget to empty it....lol.
