Rainfall totals from March 12th-14th

The melt down started on Tuesday as a warm air mass made its way into the region on southerly winds blowing in ahead of a large, slow-moving storm system developing in the southern Plains. A burst of moderate to heavy rainfall Tuesday afternoon and evening created flooding in much of the area as runoff increased quickly. We’ve had non-stop melting since Tuesday morning, but much lighter rainfall since Tuesday. The official snow depth in Rochester started the week at 22 inches, but has fallen to less than a foot as of Wednesday morning’s measurement. The next measurement that will be revealed later today will likely show that we’re closer to half a foot of snow depth. The good new is that as colder air returns tonight, our melt down will be slowed dramatically as refreeze will occur each night and temperatures will only be above freezing few a few hours during the daylight hours each day for the next week.

Here’s a look at some rainfall totals from the past couple of days:
