Water…….. Lots of it

September 10, 2009

OK, so it’s going to rain a bunch. There’s no two ways about the fact that this weekend is going to present many problems to those who have outdoor plans. The threat of anything tropical still looks quite low, but our forecast will be the same regardless. Here it is, if you want to see it.

Thursday: Mostly cloudy with a 70% chance for thunderstorms. Highs will be in the upper 80s with easterly wind around 5-10 mph.

Thursday Night: Mostly cloudy with a 30% chance for thunderstorms. Lows will be in the lower 70s.

Friday: Mostly cloudy with a 70% chance for thunderstorms. Highs will be in the middle to upper 80s.

Friday Night: Mostly cloudy with a 40% chance for thunderstorms. Lows will be in the lower 70s.

Saturday: Mostly cloudy with an 80% chance for thunderstorms. Heavy rain is likely. Highs will be in the lower to middle 80s.

Sunday through Wednesday: Sunday is another wet one. An 80% chance of rain with highs in the lower to middle 80s is what I’m going for that day. Monday through Wednesday are more iffy with two different model solutions offered. Basically my more reliable model is wet, and my more flaky one is totally drying us out. I’ll go a little wetter than normal with about a 40% chance of rain throughout the period. Just know that we will be soaked by then, and if my more reliable model pans out, we could have some flooding issues. Highs will be in the upper 80s, with lows near 70.

Rainfall totals between Thursday and Sunday are likely to be 3-6 inches on average, with isolated storm totals as high as 10 inches. That’s a lot of water for sure. Thank God we’ve been fairly dry!
