Then the rains came. A whole months worth of precipitation fell in a matter of hours this past Thursday, along with the all-time max 24hr precipitation observation at OSNW3, again. It now stands at 5.32". Temperatures this past week were a bit below average, but nothing unbearable. We are currently averaging a max temp of 1.1° lower then last June through the first 15 days.

The 75 Year Storm
In all of my 11 years living in Oshkosh I have never witnessed this kind of flooding. 50% of the homes in the city experienced some sort of flood damage totaling an estimated $13 million. The deluge was caught on video via the OSNW3 webcam. As you can see, the heaviest precipitation came during the hours of 5 and 6 o'clock.
