A Lot Of Rain On The Way

Good Saturday, folks. A cold front is slamming on the brakes across our region, leading to a few rounds of showers and storms this weekend. The action will really pick up into the first half of next week as we find this area in the battle zone between summer and very cold early season temps. The end result: A lot of water is going to fall.

Today’s weather relationship status is complicated. Why? Because a front is slowing down across the southern half of the state, leading to some big time temperature and precipitation swings. South of the boundary are in the low and mid 70s. North of the boundary may struggle into the low and mid 60s.

It’s not going to be wall to wall rain today, but you will need to keep the umbrellas and ponchos handy. Many of you will see several dry hours today, but the southwestern sky will begin to light up with showers and a few thunderstorms working in. That action may increase by late this afternoon into the evening…

Showers and a few thunderstorms will be around Sunday, but it’s not likely to rain all day.

The setup from Monday through Wednesday continues to get more and more of my attention. It’s a potent setup for torrential rains that can cause flooding issues. It’s basically fall verses summer and we are the battle zone. Watch the repeat rain action…

The forecast models continue to be full steam ahead on some big rain numbers showing up through next week…

Those kinds of numbers can cause flooding issues to develop and could make this the wettest September on record for the state.

The pattern continues to see the cold air overwhelming the country into early October. Check out the CFS temp departures for the first 10 days of the month…

Enjoy your Saturday and take care.
