Duncan receives significant rainfall this weekend

DUNCAN — Duncan had its wettest weekend this year, by having more than 3 inches of precipitation drop between Friday morning and Monday morning.

In fact, the rainfall resulted in a gain of about 3.25 inches, bringing the year total up to 11.08 inches. At the same time last year, the rain total was at 13.87 inches, which puts 2014 behind by 2.79 inches.

By 8 a.m. Friday, the weather station at The Duncan Banner had measured 1.21 inches of rain. Saturday, a total of 0.35 was measured. At 8 a.m. Monday, an additional 1.69 inches was measured.

Similarly, a three-day period toward the beginning of June 2013 resulted in one of the biggest rain periods for the year. Between the morning of June 4, 2013, and June 6, 2013, 2.66 inches of rain was measured, with the most significant rainfall measuring at 1.88 inches.

The Friday to Monday period is the first rainfall this month. It’s also the first rainfall Duncan has received since the morning of May 28, when 1 inch or rain was measured. The rainfall this month accounts for more than 1/4 of the total rainfall for the year so far.

The rainfall measured this weekend may be the last precipitation Duncan sees until Thursday, when a thunderstorm is predicted, according to the National Weather Service. There is a 40 percent chance of rain Thursday.
