Rain Brings Some Relief to Southern Minnesota:
July 19, 2006

Some welcome rains fell on July 19, 2006 focused primarily on south central and southeastern Minnesota. Martin and Faribault counties were among the drier places in the southern half of the state. The two to four inch rain in these counties was beneficial to agricultural interests. Another streak of heavier rain, roughly from Mankato to Rochester, fell upon an area that has been somewhat better off than the rest of southern Minnesota There was no significant widespread rain north of a line from Ortonville to Forest Lake. Radar-based rainfall estimates from this event can be seen in these images from WSI July 19 and July 20.

Listed below are rainfall totals from the National Weather Service
