Weekend rain tops 4″ in spots

WEST MICHIGAN — It was certainly long awaited…a good soaking rain needed to alleviate the abnormally dry conditions West Michigan had been experiencing the last several weeks. Our forecast models last week were showing a solid one to two inches across the area, with some isolated three inch amounts possible.

Through several sources, the Grand Rapids National Weather Service has complied a list of rainfall totals over the weekend. The highest amounts were located across Allegan and Van Buren Counties with three to four inches (in yellow). Most other areas picked up one to two inches (in green). The image attached to this story is radar estimated precipitation. Thanks to all that submitted reports to FOX 17 via Facebook too.
