24-hr total: a record?

Posted by Bret B on August 19, 2012, 8:05 pm, in reply to "A rain surprise!"

Since it started yesterday around 7:30PM, we recorded 9.5" of rain. Today it was calmer: just a few brief showers seperated by some periods of sunshine. Very pleasant temperatures.

So how does this rain stack up in the record books of greatest 24-hr totals for La Manzanilla (since June 2004 anyway)?

#1: 12.5" from Hurricane Jova on 2011-10-11/12.
#2: 9.5" from this recent storm.
#3: 5.6" from TS Henriette on 2007-09-03, and also from Hurricane John on 2006-07-31.

Not too shabby considering this storm had no name...
