Another soaker

Overall the rain amounts didn’t measure up to what fell on April 30, but some of the totals were surprisingly high.

In Lansdale, Montgomery County, a total of 3.4 inches was reported, and amounts of 2 inches or more were common to the west of Philadelphia, where flood warnings remain posted.

About 1.5 inches had fallen at Philadelphia International Airport as of  4 p.m.

No major flooding along streams has occurred, and the Schuylkill has been well-behaved.

A flood warning has been issued for Chester Creek at Chester, where the water level reached 7.91 feet at 4 p.m., within 0.1 inches of flood stage.

In Montgomery County, flooding was reported on Balligomingo Road, in Upper Merion Township, and on Water Street, in Skippack Township.

Fortunately, the rain appears to be about over, and for better or for worse, it looks like the Phillies will be able to play tonight.
