Rain Gauges Have A Busy Week, Temperatures Above Normal

Quick Look Forecast from NWS

Next Rain Maker Approaches Tonight

Light showers are expected through the overnight hours into Monday morning. The HRRR model predicts light rain Monday morning:

More Active Monday Into Tuesday

Showers and gusty winds (up to 30 mph) on Monday will be a good indicator of warm south winds, ahead of our next cold front.

More rain is on the way Monday night into Tuesday, giving us a shot at heavier showers and a couple thunderstorms. We are not expecting another round of severe weather. Storms require instability, but that’ll be low Monday night into Tuesday. Dew points will be pretty low, too low. Other severe weather ingredients  — which would be impressive in another context — are not lining up together; therefore, we don’t expect anything more than a gusty wind or two from these rainmakers.

NAM 3 Model Loop For Monday

Expected precipitation amounts are between 0.5 and 1 inch, with higher totals dependent on the intensity of rainfall rates late Monday.

Warm Temperatures, Especially Late Week — Wet At Times For SEC Basketball Tournament

GFS Loop Thursday-Sunday

We won’t really ever maneuver out of the 60°s for high temps this week, except maybe this weekend when we’ll be pushing 70°. If you have tickets to the SEC Basketball Tourney (March 8-12), the rain gear would be a good choice for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
