Heavy rain and severe weather chances increase late-week

1It’s no secret we need more rain. This past weekend gave us less than a tenth of an inch areawide! Here’s a look at the potential beginning late Wednesday night, ending Saturday. There’s a real good possibility we get more than a half inch of rain. In fact, some of the proxy indicators suggest a better than 50/50 chance of seeing more than a half inch! As these continue to be refined, their accuracy will increase. So, we’ll be able to zoom into this map with more accuracy in the next 24 hours.

Along with the chance of heavy rainfall will be the passage of a strong cold front sometime Friday. If this was May, June, July, or even August, I’d be more concerned of severe weather. However, the storm variables are harder to get in line this time of year. It all depends on timing. If it comes through during the late-afternoon hours and there’s enough instability, we could be talking about some damaging wind (squall line). Right now, it’s a little early to speculate…but we’ll be all over it in the next few days.
