Behind our church fellowship hall we had a big puddle of water from Fri nights rain. Now after last night we now have a nice pond. And a couple ducks were enjoying it too.
So, yes, its wet. Very wet. Some flooding issues around in places, thankfully nothing too widespread, but too much water is still too much water. And, thankfully, no heavy rain for a few days.
A big storm/trough is moving through today. A ridge will build in for Tue – Fri. This will bring some milder temperatures once again by the end of the week. But a major trough will move slowly into our area for the weekend. As it moves in, and the ridge lets go, a river of moisture will flow north from the Gulf of Mexico to give us yet another round of heavy showers and thunderstorms. Flash flooding and stream flooding will be a concern again. At this time I expect 2”+ of rain Fri afternoon – Sat afternoon. This sounds eerily like last summer … let us hope not.
Praying you stay dry. Enjoy.
