Cold front drops some rain across the county

By Carolyn B. Edwards BCC Staff Writer

The Courier's rubber ducky was able to take a brief swim last week in the pothole in our parking lot out back of our new location at 1136 Main Street.

Rainfall totals reported by CoCoRaHS volunteers across Bandera County for Wednesday, April 3, ranged from 1.20 inches from a site about halfway down FM 1283 between Pipe Creek and Lakehills to a low of .42 inches on FM 470 near Schmidtke Road.

Twelve reporting sites averaged .74 inches across the county as a late cold front moved across Central Texas Wednesday morning. Three sites recorded traces of precipitation on Tuesday, April 2.

Moisture from the front dried up by Thursday, April 4, with sites reporting small amounts of rain from as much as a quarter of an inch in the southwest corner of the county to .08 inches near Bandera.

CoCoRaHS, the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail & Snow Network, is a nation-wide group of volunteers who record and report precipitation data.
