Whats with the forecast of 1.0"- 2.0" daily rainfall rate for Wednesday and Thursday?

We have had over 9.2" of rain in Consejo for the past 2 days and it is still pouring down!!!

There was definitely a circulation in the wave as it passed over us last night. Rain and wind started out about 9.00pm coming from the East and ended up coming from the West in the early hours of the morning.

Caught us off guard as our West facing windows were left open!!!
