Heavy rain threat over the next week

Good Sunday to one and all. We have another system rolling across the region today, bringing a brief mix and some rain. This kicks off another very busy setup that can lead to additional high water issues.

Today’s stuff may start as a touch of a mix very early today, but showers quickly take over. Heavy rain is possible in the southeast and that may cause a few local high water issues.  As this system works by, colder air filters back in and may bring a few flurries on Monday.

We will have another system moving in here tonight and Sunday, bringing the potential for a light mix to start. Heavy rain is possible in the southeast through the day, then colder air could bring a few flakes in for Monday.

From there, several systems target the region over the next week and change. The next one may begin with a touch of frozen stuff on Tuesday, but it’s another big rain maker. Two more systems then follow that up later in the week into next weekend. Rainfall totals will be way up there and will likely cause additional flooding issues…



Significant flooding issues are possible over the next week to 10 days.

February continues to mimic last February and that’s not a good thing since it was the wettest February on record and led to significant flooding issues. The end of the last February started to change the pattern back to winter and that took is into a March that featured historic snowfall. Could the same happen this year?

The models are certainly pointing toward a similar pattern flip as February closes and March begins. Watch the cold finally get out of the west and roll east on the European:

The new version of the GFS goes all out with the cold from late month into early March:

Here are your tracking toys for the day…

Make it a good one and take care.
