Rain totals: a town-by-town break down

Heavy rain fell in Maine on Saturday. Take a look to see what the official totals were from the National Weather Service.

MAINE, USA — Another December rain storm brought heavy, steady rain to the entire state, especially along the coastline. Rain started late Friday night and lasted through most of the day on Saturday.

This storm featured impressive moisture transport and enough forcing to allow the rain to fall rapidly. Seas were rough, rivers were high, and streets ended up flooded out. There are quite a few spots in Maine that ended up with over 4" of rain total, which is a pretty impressive feat.

Now that most of the heavy rain has wrapped up, we can take a look at just how much fell across the entire state. Thanks to everyone who submitted information to us and the National Weather Service.

Take a look at the current reported totals courtesy of the National Weather Service at Gray and Caribou. They are broken down by county below.
