More than two inches of rain fell on most of Oswego County over the weekend, a steady, often driving rain that filled basements and creeks.
Fulton received 2.31″ of rain from 6:00 p.m. Saturday to Monday morning, according to the National Weather Service’s automated weather monitor at the Oswego County Airport in Volney.
The greatest portion of it came during a nearly half-inch downpour that covered about one hour on Saturday night.
Though it felt to most folks as though it rained all weekend, the rain actually stopped after the downpour, resuming after sunrise on Sunday.
Hancock Airport in Syracuse recorded more than four inches of rain during the same time period.Â That’s a record for that date and the second highest total in the city’s history.
The weather service says several areas received more than four inches of rain, including the Dolgeville area in Oneida County.
Roads along low-lying creeks and rivers experienced some flooding.
Route 104 in the village of Albion was closed Monday morning because of flooding, as was Route 183 in Amboy.
