Description
Rainfall is measured to assess storms and their effects on flooding and sewer performance and design. Rainfall location color icons indicate rainfall totals and maximum storm rating during the past 24 hours. Data is sent once 2mm is accumulated in each gauge, so timing will vary. Website is updated every 15 minutes . Higher storm ratings and rainfall totals may have occurred if a storm lasts more than 24h. Storm ratings and rainfall are based on data at the gauge location only - nearby areas may experience differing conditions due to variability of rainstorms. Rainfall is measured between May and October; snowfall is not measured. This site is best viewed using Google Chrome. It is optimized for the two most recent versions of Google Chrome, Apple Safari, and Mozilla Firefox, and the three most recent versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer. Some functionality may not work on mobile platforms. It has visualizations that render differently by all browsers.
