Rain Rain Go Away

 

Lots of places could be under the gun today as far as flash flooding possibilities go. If you have seen excessive rainfall over the past couple of days, make sure you keep an eye on those creeks and streams as we head into the afternoon and evening hours. The good news is that this is the last day we will have to worry about flooding for a while!

Today: 60% chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms. Some could produce heavy rain. High near 82.

Tonight: 50% chance of heavy rain. Watch those creeks and streams! Low near 69 degrees.

Tomorrow: 40% chance of a lingering shower or thunderstorm. High near 81.

Be sure to watch those creeks and streams. Hopefully the NWS in Jackson will be quick to issue warnings in places that have seen a lot of rain over the past few days. Keep an eye on the radar too, you can always find it here:

The rain today will still be associated with that area of low pressure that had been spinning around here for the pas couple of days. It will actually get some movement to it and truck off to the east today and tomorrow. The NAM future radar is suggesting that it will try to stir up some strong storms as it forms a boundary when it paces off. Check out this image. This is around 8-10PM tonight.

There may not be enough energy for this to happen because of all the cloud cover and rain we will see during the day. Also, this is not THE cold front thats causing this line. It’s just some outflow from the initial LP. You’ll know the difference between these two boundaries Wednesday night as the real COLD front moves in and cools us off quite a bit.

We could be talking about record low temps for the 4th time this summer! Thursday morning will likely feature lows in the upper 40s in the valleys.

Well at least with the cool weather, comes drier weather… I’d rather be cold and dry than cold & wet. Here’s your 7 day forecast. Thanks for stopping by!
