Over Three Inches of Rain recorded in Walhalla on Monday

It was a wet start to the week in Oconee County. Official U.S. Weather Observer Barbara Wilson gives rainfall totals over the past 24 hours recorded at her weather station at Hickory Hollow Farm in Walhalla. “Well, the rain that we had between 7am and 5:15pm, was most of it, almost 2.5 inches, but from 7am yesterday to 7am today we had 3.33 inches. Our high yesterday was 47 and our low was 39. So far, we have had over 6.5 inches of precipitation for the month of November.” Numbers may be different where you live, Wilson recorded these figures from her weather station, which is about a mile from downtown Walhalla. Wilson and her family, the Brandts, have been recording the weather from Walhalla for the National Weather Service for over 100 years. They are the longest active weather watchers and volunteer reporters for the National Weather Service.
