Harvey Rain Rates

Posted: 04 Sep 2017 06:27 AM

The featured table presents an analysis of available one minute interval precipitation observations from ASOS sites near Hurricane Harvey in Texas. While the total column simply presents the six day precipitation total, the other seven columns show the computed hourly precipitation rate based on actual totals over the given period. The chart shows some mind blowing rates experienced of over ten inches per hour at the one minute timescale and even over four inches per hour on the hourly time scale.

Good = 8
Bad = 0
