We've had light rain so far today- less than 1/2 inch. Currently, we are in a rain-free spot according to radar, but heavier stuff if moving into our area within the hour.
We lost power from 12:15 until 1:37 local time, which unfortunately reset the weather station. This means the precip total on the site is not completely accurate, but if you add the 12:15 result to the current total since restoration, precip is at .36 of inch.
Winds are now gusting to over 10 mph, but feel worse. Other stations in the area are reporting similar speeds. The eye of the storm is now about 200 miles southeast of here, so we'll see things heat up as we move through the afternoon.
