Tropical Storm Olga formed last Friday in the Gulf of Mexico, and briefly reached tropical storm strength before the circulation weakened and merged with a cold front. However, an important trait of tropical and post tropical systems is the substantial amount of moisture they contain, often leading to prolonged heavy rainfall and flooding. Olga was no exception, heavy rain caused flooding in the lower Mississippi River Valley Friday night, and continued northward over the weekend. By Saturday the remnants of the storm had entered the Bowling Green area, contributing to the 1.25 inches of rain recorded at the Warren County (FARM) Ky Mesonet site this weekend.
