Heavy rainfall likely Saturday March 23

Although there continue to be slight differences in the storm track the models are in pretty good agreement that tomorrow will be quite wet. Rain should develop from south to north in the area starting overnight Friday (tonight) and become steady a short while before daybreak. Steady rain continues throughout the day Saturday, becoming heavier in the afternoon before tapering off in the evening.

Total rainfall of 2 - 3 inches forecast.

The NWS has issued a flood watch. They are mostly concerned about small streams topping their banks a bit in the afternoon, although some road ponding and field flooding is also possible.

There is very little likelihood of a thunderstorm or locally heavy downpour, but it can't be ruled out.

Sunday likely clear and breezy, with gusts in the 20s probable.


Just in time.  We're only 26-50% over average right now.  Practically a drought.
