New Year's Day Update

More than 2" of rainfall has been recorded since we began 2011. January typically averages 5.11", so we're off to a great start. The rainfall should wind down this afternoon but we will have a dreary winter-like day. Great for watching football indoors!

Expect temperatures to continue falling throughout the day. At 12:35 pm, it is 44.2° down from 57.8° at 8 o'clock this morning.

Ready for some December 'by the numbers'...what a crazy month.
