Rainfall totals from Hermine
It's been a very interesting past 24hrs around here, due to Tropical Storm Hermine. As most of you know by now, the storm passed directly over Bexar County around noon on Tuesday the 7th, dropping lots of rain and giving the San Antonio Airport wind gusts to 60mph. At my place in Helotes, winds stayed in the 30's. Rainfall totals have been impressive for most of our area and I have posted some latest graphics with this posting. For my backyard, we've had just over 4 inches, but that total is actually much less than most of Bexar and surrounding counties as you can see by the graphics I have posted from Weather Underground. We missed the big rains last night and are currently missing a "Rain Train" that has developed within a few miles of here, extending from near Hondo, through Fair Oaks and all of the way to north of Austin. This line of storms has moved little in the past 5 hours!
