Heavy Rain This Week

I hope this is not a sign of things to come. I've had several friends that are farmers lately ask if we are going to see a wet and flooded season this Spring. While I would hope that we do not see a repeat of that, we are not getting off to a good start in March. Many parts of Region 8 could see 4-6" of rain over the next 7 days.

The above image is the midnight run of the GFS model and it indicates a very wet period starting late Wednesday. Thursday looks VERY wet, with continued rainfall through the week. In fact, there are some signs pointing toward some severe weather this weekend.

We're going to keep a close eye on the flooding situation, but will also watch the threat of severe weather.
