CLEVELAND -- After nearly two weeks of rain free conditions at the airport, much of the Cleveland area received its first measurable rainfall on Monday.
A cold front moving through the Midwest brought a large shield of rain that began mid morning and lasted through the early evening hours.
Many areas received at least a half inch of rainfall according to the National Weather Service office in Cleveland. Toledo Express Airport was the highest of the official reporting stations with 2.05" of rain through 8 p.m., while Cleveland Hopkins Airport measured 1.23" of rain.
For August, Cleveland is now .22" below normal. For the year, we are three inches off the normal mark.
The remnants of Isaac may move into the area this weekend, giving us another good chance of rain says WKYC Meteorologist Marcus Walter.
