Cashing in on Some Rain

A line of showers and storms rumbled through East Texas earlier today, providing East Texans with some brief, but heavy downpours.

A cap or "lid" in the atmosphere kept the storms from being severe when they rolled into East Texas. So instead of seeing large hail and damaging winds, we ended up with some heavy rain, which was certainly welcomed on all acounts.

Here are the rainfall totals as called in by our weather watchers. On average, many areas saw anywhere from a quarter to a third of an inch, with some lucky viewers getting over a half inch of rain.
