3.58 Inches of Rain in Three Days - Mid Michigan

By: chatcat , 12:53 PM GMT on May 15, 2014

The Shiawassee River is well over it's banks and the rain is still coming down.  There was intermittent rain all day yesterday but the heavy showers began about 10 PM last night and lasted all night.  We received an additional 1.17" total for yesterday.  A flood warning is in effect for the Shiawassee River at Owosso until further notice.
Radar is showing the end of the rain approaching my area but there is still more coming from the southwest.  We drove by the dam in Corunna yesterday and there was very little waterfall left . . . . just rapids.  It was dry almost all summer last year with no waterfall, so that's how high the river is as compared to last year.
Right now (8:30 AM EDT), our temp is 43F and the humidity is at 89%.  The pressure is 29.76 inches and falling.  The dew point is 40F and visibility is 4 miles.  Winds are from the west at 3 mph and we have moderate rain falling.  Yesterday's high was 61F and the low was 46F.
