October 2nd – October 3rd Rain Totals

We were expecting it overnight Monday into Tuesday and Mother Nature delivered – heavy rain. A stalled out front allowed plenty of moisture to be brought northwards overnight, with the rain starting to taper off Tuesday morning. Here’s a look at some of the rain totals that came in overnight! That overnight rain has put October 2017 as the 9th wettest October for Sioux Falls and the time frame from October 1st-3rd is the wettest October 1st-3rd for Sioux Falls by over 2 inches!
