The rain is back. It's been a while for some.

It's back to Monday everyone :-)

Since we had such a wonderful weather weekend, I suppose we can deal with the return of rainfall during the work-week. My apologies for all those folks that are on vacation. Here's what's going on in a nutshell:

HPC - Monday HPC - Tuesday

The first batch of moisture coming in will be semi-tropical in nature (because it's fed in from the Gulf of Mexico and southern Atlantic Ocean). This emphasizes spots of steady rain, but without a large threat of severe weather. Then on Tuesday, we'll see a cold front sweep through. The cold fronts typically have the threat for the stronger thunderstorms, but the air out ahead of it will have been tapped somewhat. But, the 'precipitable water' in the sky will be rather high, so expect these two systems to provide a one-two shot of healthy rain to an area that hasn't seen it in a while (that's us). Here's some local projections for rainfall from this event:

If the intensity potential for these thunderstorms crosses into the 'severe' territory, we'll breakdown the anticipated threat. At this point, however, they look to be on the 'garden variety' side for now.

These showers will be out of here by Wednesday morning, giving us another nice couple of days from there.

GFS - Wednesday 8am GFS - Thursday 2pm

We'll have to see if that messes up the Father's Day weekend, as I'd always prefer showers during Wednesday/Thursday in order to get it all done with by the weekend, but so far it looks like those two days are going to be our best this week.
