Does Rain Beget More Rain? Is It Okay To Drive Through Water?
Does rain beget more rain? Does standing water actually create more storms?
Todd Heitkamp, Warning Coordination Meteorologist with the Sioux Falls National Weather Service, says, “No.”
He says just because the area has been saturated with rain the past few days does not necessarily mean we’ll be inundated with more rain.
Heitkamp goes on to say the biggest misconception he’s seen over the years, during wet weather like this, is people think it’s okay to drive through water.
