8/12 - Newcomerstown 1S (Tuscarawas County) ... BULLETIN Rain began at Newcomerstown, Ohio just after 10 a.m., and didn't let up until 11:50 a.m. In that 110 minute period, a total of 3.33" of rainfall was measured. Water up to 2 1/2 feet deep has been observed at many intersections. The all time record 24 HR rainfall for Newcomerstown 1S is 3.76" measured on July 26, 1981. If additional rains develop, this record will surely be in jeopardy.
8/12 - Newcomerstown 1S (Tuscarawas County) ... A small but intense area of heavy rainfall moved through Newcomerstown, Ohio between 9:30 and 10 p.m. pushing the daily rainfall to 4.36". This smashes the old rainfall record for 24 HRS of 3.76" established back on July 26'th, 1981. Today's rainfall brings the total to 7.59" to this point for the month of August, bringing into focus another dubious record.... the record precipitation for a month. This was established in August of 1979 with 12.72". I will be keeping an eye on the rain guage in the next 19 days, watching to see if that record is broken as well. And to think, before August began, only 16.59" of precipitation had fallen for the entire year of 2001.
