Entirely-Too-Early-To-Be-Meaningful Steeplechase Forecast

NWS thinks “rains finally return” on Friday and Saturday for Middle Tennessee:


Too early to know for sure, but models are hinting at rain. As we pointed out yesterday, since 1980, average rainfall on May 10 is 0.08″.  That’s tied for the second driest day in May. You can think that’s good, or you can think “uh oh, we’re due for rain.”

I (Editor’s Note: watch the The Intern get his meteorology on) am inclined to believe it will rain Saturday. The NAO (North Atlantic Oscillation) is negative and is forecast to remain negative for a little while longer. Negative NAOs block our rain-makers from exiting quickly, which means our rain stays longer. Plus, all the models predict rain.
