Default Rain rain rain!

I'm curious how much rain the lake received over the weekend? We were up two weeks ago and the water line was down a bit from normal for this time of year.

THANKS

Spent the weekend on the boat, really wasn't effected by the rain. Would be surprised if we picked up anything significant to raise the lake level. Anyone know?

Default DES data

NH DES station at Weirs shows the lake level held essentially constant over the weekend, and only 1/2" of rain in the last week (Lakeport reported about 0.7"). Winnipesaukee lake level appears to be down about an inch from the level two weeks ago.

Note Bizer has historical data year-over-year. NH DES shows last two weeks in detail.

Not much in Alton Bay. Stream behind the house is barely audible and difficult to see water in the stream, except for a few spots. If we got a half inch, I would be surprised. Not much help with the drought conditions in southern / middle NH.
