Drought Improvement, Light Rain Tonight Into Friday AM, Weekend Uncertainty

I’ll start off with good news, and that is that our drought situation has improved. It is not gone, but it has improved.

Davidson has been left with a Moderate Drought, while WillCo. is under a Severe Drought. Better than the Extreme Drought we were dealing with.

The bad news is that over the next 7 days there doesn’t look to be much help with that, although there are some rain chances, so let’s discuss.

Tonight light rain will spread across the area, lasting overnight into Friday morning.

Most of the rain should be gone by Friday lunch; your Friday evening plans, including the Franklin tree lighting look dry.

Saturday low rain chances reemerge.

The HRRR model (above) shows a majority of the rain staying to our SE, but a few stray showers coming in during the morning to lunch hours. The system should pull away in the afternoon, leaving evening plans dry, but confidence is a little shaky in that.

Sunday rain chances exist, but they are low. Models are confused on timing, will have to wait and see on that.

Rainfall totals from this weekend look to be in the 0.25″ – 0.75″ range.

No severe weather chances exist with any of this.
