6.26.14 Rivers Running High After Rain

Rivers are running high after heavy rain in some spots.
Our first rainy stretch in quite some time dumped over 1" of water this week.

The image above shows rainfall from late Tuesday through late Thursday. Notice the totals over 3" in the Adirondacks, and in Southwest New Hampshire. Those were the jackpot areas, which resulted in rapid rises in area rivers. In Wilmington, New York, officials conducted a river rescue on the AuSable Thursday after swimmers were swept away. While waters will drop Friday into the weekend, stay alert if you plan on being in or near the water.

In Southern Vermont, where totals ranged from 1-3", some street flooding was reported Wednesday night. Brattleboro, for example, reported water up to the wheels of cars downtown.

Even after the recent rain, the totals are still no where near the rain we saw last May and June in Burlington, when the city logged over 18" of rain. That made it the wettest two consecutive month's in recorded Queen City history.
