The rain is coming to end this lunchtime. And to make things nicer, the sun may even come out some for the afternoon. How much sun? The satellite pics show some decent breaks, and with a SW flow, yea we should see some sunshine to make for a pleasant evening, although everything is rather soggy at best.
Heavy rain is coming starting today and lasting through the late afternoon to early evening Thursday. Flash flooding is a threat as stated in the previous update. The change is that the heaviest is Thu not Wed night. So maybe we are getting off the Wed heavy rain pattern.
I would expect 2-3" rain widespread with up to 4"+ in localized places. Why? Strong trough to our west, sub-tropical to tropical moisture connection, N-S oriented flow, and slow movement all point to at least 2" rain. Classic and strong signal. Maybe it will under perform, and that would be fine with me. All this moisture has led to too many mosquitos at my house. Some drier weather would be great ... or colder to know them bugs out.
After this storm, fall weather sets in for awhile.

Although forceasting the weather is an imperfect science, it is a pleasure to follow what the Creator has made.
