Heavier Rain Then Predicted And Then Two Possible Storms
What was only expected to accumulate half an inch to three quarters of an inch was much higher. Rainfall amounts that occurred at my house was 1.40 inches of rain and their were isolated higher amounts. This just made areas of high water higher and has caused more isolated flooding of streets and yards. We should be able to dry out though over the next week. Their is only a one day with a slight chance of rain this week until next Sunday. Sunday then we could have a small 1-3 inch snowstorm occur. Models have been all over with this one, but over the last couple of days it has continued to show a storm near our area. The air should be cold enough for snow if the storm occurs. After that we have to watch for a big storm to occur between the 25th and the 30th. The models have picked up on this storm for three days now with a track somewhere between the Appalachians and 100 miles or more off the Atlantic Coast. The farther east track would cause a blizzard for the immediate coastal regions if it occurs. The farther east tracks would cause several inches of rain before changing over to a couple inches of snow. The temperatures after we are in the 50s for the next 2 days should fall to the upper 30s to mid 40s for the next week. Stay tuned as I get more details on the two possible snowstorms.
