...Storm Total Rainfall Amounts...

This list of rainfall totals has been updated to include more 
stations across the area (140 stations total). Heavy rainfall 
affected our forecast area for multiple days in a row, leading to 
very large rainfall totals. The ingredients for the heavy rain 
included a moist subtropical jet stream, a series of upper level 
disturbances, and a generally stationary surface front. The rain in 
this event fell over the course of 5 days.

CLIMATE FACT:
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Tallahasse's normal February rainfall is 4.85", and normal yearly 
rainfall is 59.23". By comparison in this event, totals across much 
of the city (including the official climate site at the airport) 
ranged from 10 to 13 inches. That would be 200-270% of the normal 
rainfall for the entire month of February, and 17-22% of the normal 
rainfall for an entire year.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

We will update this product as additional rainfall reports are 
received. Amounts are from 7 AM EST Friday February 22 through 7 PM  
EST Tuesday February 26.
