More slow-moving storms hit the area Friday evening.  There were no reports of severe weather (hail or wind), but multiple reports of flooding.

Some areas picked up around four inches of rain in just a couple of hours.  While the doppler radar plots below will give you a general sense of the rainfall distribution, we did receive reports of higher amounts.  One such report was from Walthall in Chesterfield county, where 4.8″ of rain was measured with a rain gauge by a National Weather Service employee.
