A soaking for Wichita this past weekend; Sunday’s rain set record

All that thunder early Saturday morning didn’t bring much rain to Wichita, but Sunday more than made up for it.

The 2.50 inches that fell Sunday set a record for Aug. 23 and pushed 2015’s total to more than 32 inches — nearly 10 inches above average for this time of year.

The area now gets a few days to dry out before the next round of precipitation arrives late this week.
