stage4 precip estimate for 7 Oct 2007
The featured map is of stage4 rainfall estimates from Sunday over portions of Northeastern Iowa. Delaware County is shown in the middle of the image with rainfall estimates over 3 inches for a good portion of the county. Locations within that area reported in excess of 5 inches thanks to very efficient rain producers training over the same area. The result is October flooding in cities such as Manchester. A 5 inch daily rainfall event is extremely rare for October, with the last known event reported on 11 October 1973.

Good = 16
