ALBANY, NY - For the past three weeks there was a lack of rain in the Capital Region. The area finally got rain on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday.

In the past three days there was more rain than in the past three months.

Albany received a total of 2.8 inches of rain. Most areas got anywhere from 2 inches to 4.5 inches of rain. The last time Albany had more than 2.8 inches of rain in three days was in September 2011 with Tropical Storm Lee.

Before the recent storm hit the area, there was a deficit of rain. Albany's rainfall deficit range was around 5.5 inches to 6 inches. Now the rainfall deficit is cut in half, at 2.7 inches.

With the recent rainfall, water levels are noticeably responding. Last week the Cohoes Falls had low water levels. On Tuesday more water was running over the falls and clearly different.
