I've used the State Climatology office maps (http://www.aos.wisc.edu/~sco/clim-watch/) in the past but they change daily.

Anyone have a good source for daily precipitation maps where you can search by date? Thanks!

I use the Ventusky weather app. Gives accurate info by the hour. It only shows about ten days of weather info though, the last 7 days and the next three days. That’s plenty for me though

This site from iWeathernet generates some nice precip maps in daily increments, going back at least 72 hours. I've had some problems getting it to work on certain browsers, but has been stable for awhile now with Firefox. Clicking anywhere on the map will give you a localized rain total for that spot. Seems fairly accurate and can give you a good idea how much rainfall a particular watershed has absorbed.

Thanks - that was the one I was looking for. Someone (you, probably) posted it a week or 2 ago but I forgot to bookmark it.

I did find this one from the National Weather Service out, here's the La Crosse site. It lets you go back about a year.

I've been having a hell of a time the last week, as the MPX (Minneapolis) radar is down for an upgrade. If you're looking for data for the northern part of the driftless, be aware that any radar based precip maps will be way off due to MPX being down
