Lots of April Showers

You know the saying, "April showers bring May flowers."  This year we should have a lot of May flowers!  We've seen at least a trace of rain on 9 of the first 16 days of the month and we're already at 2.67" of rain for the month.  With a few inches of rain looking likely this week most of the area will see some flooding! 

And if we see another 3 inches of rain it would put us up to 5.67" for the month, which would rank as the 9th wettest April on record, with plenty more days left in the month!  There's an outside chance we could see 4 inches of rain this week and that would put us up to 6.67" and in the 5th slot for wettest Aprils ever in the Quad Cities!  For our friends along the river and lets hope that doesn't happen!
