The showers and thunderstorms that rolled through the Big Country last night dropped a decent amount of rainfall to help aid in the drought conditions we're facing.

Data collected through 7 a.m. CDT by the CoCoRaHS (Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network) shows the following estimated rainfall across west Texas:

-Abilene: 0.48"

-San Angelo: 0.54"

-Dyess Air Force Base: 0.5"

-Eastland: 0.6"

-Sweetwater: 0.23"

-Brownwood: 0.3"

-Eldorado: 0.13"

-Junction: 0.1"

Most of the rain showers raced east after 6:00 a.m. We can expect additional rain chances through much of the next seven days.
