Yesterday (Sept. 5) we experienced the most significant thunderstorm I have seen in the mid-Valley since moving here in 1989. Lots of thunder, for hours; cloud-to-ground lightning; and heavy rain occurred.
The total rainfall at Corvallis Hyslop weather station was 2.94 inches. This was the wettest September day in Corvallis’ history; weather records go back to 1889. The previous September record was 2.18 inches on 9/18/1969.
Wow! What a storm!!
