Rainfall continues, but YTD level still well below average
The additional 0.4 inches of rain logged in Uvalde on Wednesday and Thursday has pushed the year-to-date reading to 9.03 inches, still well below the 114-year-average of 17 inches. Elsewhere in the county, rainfall for those same days reached 3.8 to 4.5 inches.
As predicted by the National Weather Service on Tuesday, the upper-level disturbance that moved over the area last Sunday has continued to deposit precipitation in Uvalde County.
