Another heavy dose of rain expected this afternoon

Sep 27, 2010 10:32:00 AM - thestate.com

Columbia’s rain-free streak reached 30 days before a good soaking arrived Sunday, and now another drenching is expected today.

The National Weather Service forecasts heavy rains Monday afternoon as a front moves through, with severe thunderstorms possible. Some areas could get 1 to 2 inches of rain, with the heavy stuff beginning after 2 p.m.

Columbia Metropolitan Airport got 1.03 inches of rain from this system through 9 a.m. Monday. Most areas of the state had from an inch to two inches. Charleston was hit hardest, with 3.43 inches.

The wet weather is quite a contrast from the past month. Columbia Metropolitan Airport didn’t get any measurable rain for 30 days, ending Saturday. That ties for the 10th-longest dry stretch since records began being kept by the weather service in Columbia in 1887.
