As a consequence of the strength of the low pressure system, and the copious amounts of moisture that pushed north from the Gulf of Mexico, large amounts of liquid equivalent precipitation fell across the area. Some areas saw over 5 inches of precipitation in only a few days. Below is a map created from primarily co-operative observer precipitation reports, and interpolated and contoured in GIS software. Because of the smoothing, the shaded values may not precisely match the observed values at specific locations.

Finally, here is a table of the precipitation reports that we used when creating the above graphic.
