Last few days of rain helps make up for many dry weeks
Ann Arbor received 1.43 inches of rain during the storms that began on Thursday and lasted into this morning, according to Deb Elliott, observation program leader at the National Weather Service's regional office in White Lake Township.
Chelsea received the most rainfall in Washtenaw County with 2.05 inches.
"We're (still) half an inch behind on rainfall totals for what we should be at this time," said Elliott. "That rainfall was much needed in Washtenaw County."
Elliott says that even though we got a lot of rain in the last couple days, substantial damage to crops in southeast Michigan was already done after weeks of dry weather.
