Couple of Shots of Rain Tonight & Tomorrow

Tonight – Few Showers and Storms Around, No Big Deal

Few showers have popped up, and more are possible as we move into the evening. Most of us won’t see anything.

We don’t do much stupid stuff @NashSevereWx, but Sharknado is one of them. Sharknado 4 is tonight. As we said three years ago:

If you’re unfamiliar, Sharknado is one of those movies that’s so bad it’s fun. If you’re still on the fence about watching it, and you’re mature with a refined sense of humor, don’t watch. For everyone else, let’s revisit the Sharknado 3 viewing guide:

Here’s what they are talking about, in Missouri at 3:46 PM:

Monday — More Rain/Storms? High 92°

This morning, there was model disagreement about whether it will rain Monday, with the NAM4 the lone voice calling for lunchtime rain/storms.

Other models disagree with this. NWS holds our probability of precipitation at 30%.

Still Hot

High pressure will build again, turning the screw on the heat. Temps aloft will heat up, driving our high temp back into the mid 90°s. With some low level moisture present, we may squeeze out a few showers or storms, but nothing particularly satisfying. That’s why your crap apps look like this:
