Looking at this data, we may get a good 1-2" of rain by the end of the weekend. I believe this may be underestimated AND apparently I am not alone... The HPC also thinks Arkansas will get more than 1-2". In fact, if you look at the image below, they have parts of Region 8 getting more than 3" of rain over the next 5 days! I'm excited about the rain, but even more excited to have something to talk about during my 5 minutes of airtime during the newscast!
We'll see what happens. As dry as it has been lately, it's hard to get in front of the camera and raise rain chances too much. Therefore, our rainfall forecasts may be a little conservative until it actually happens! Even though I believe it will rain, it will be really hard to raise rain chances any higher than 50%.
Tune in tomorrow night to see how confident I am about the indications of rain!
