Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- After months of drought conditions, the rainfall is welcome in the valley.

Last month marked the driest September on record, with only .12 inches of rain. More rain than that fell yesterday alone. Only about a half an inch of rain was expected, but some areas saw more than twice that much.

It was the biggest one day rain total in about three months, giving the dry ground a crucial watering.

Rob Kupec, WDAY StormTRACKER Meteorologist, says, "well it's probably not going to be enough to relieve the drought, but the good news is for the spring, is that it recharges the soil before we go back into spring. So when we get freeze up, we'll have a little bit of moisture to start the spring with."

Weather will be drier for the weekend, but there's another chance for rain coming up next week.
