Rain Creeping Closer

Current Radar 

Temps today have been 10° to 15° above normal.

Out west, a winter storm is brewing.

We won’t get the “winter,” but we’ll get the rain.

Overnight, winds from the S/SE will bring in warmer and more humid air, but the rain out west will be blocked by high pressure sittin’ over the Gulf Coast. Sooooo….

Expect light rain showers to slowly spread in Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, with rain chances increasing each day. Not feeling too good about getting the timing right.

Friday – We Don’t Want to Say it Won’t Rain, But We Think It Won’t – Wake Up 54°, High 69°

The GFS model thinks we’ll see rain Friday night, but all the other models say “dry,” at least until very late Friday night.

Saturday – Better Chance of Rain – Wake Up 55°, High 66°

The rain axis gets closer, but kinda straddles I-40. Rain chances are better, I’ll be surprised if it’s not raining Saturday night, if not sooner.

In fact, the NAM4 model has rain arriving by midnight Friday evening, which would mean a light rain event Saturday:

Sunday – Rain – Wake Up 55°, High 62°

The rain axis stalls on us, and should dump a good bit of rain. Probably a washout, especially late, when we think the skies will open.
