Up to 60mm is likely between 4PM Froday and Saturday.  Mostly falling Saturday.

Updated 10AM: More rain off and on, then concerning rain Saturday/Sunday.

Updated 10AM with morning model graphics.

The rain continues.

It will rain most of the day on Wednesday and finally let up around 6PM tonight.

We should get through most of Thursday dry but by sundown it will begin to rain again, and rain quite hard most of Thursday night.

Totals between 4PM Thursday and Friday:

4PM Thursday to 4PM  Friday totals to 32 mm
4PM Thursday to 4PM Friday totals to 32 mm

32 mm is expected.  I will update this if the estimates change drastically.

We should get a few breaks on Friday but come Saturday and Sunday we can expect even more rain to fall right through the weekend.

Saturday a Concern:

Up to 30-60mm is likely between 4PM Froday and Saturday.  Mostly falling Saturday.
Up to 30-60mm is likely between 4PM Froday and Saturday. Mostly falling Saturday.

The hills and rivers haven’t had a ton of time to dry out from the historic storms of last week, so there should be some concern with the strength of the storm coming on Saturday.  It will linger through Sunday but not with large accumulations.

Again I will update this post if the forecast changes substantially.  And I will have another post on Friday to nail things down.

Thankfully, we should dry right out on Monday and then have a short and less intense rain on Tuesday before Christmas.  It is not looking good for snow on Christmas.  I’d recommend heading up the mountains if you are in need of white. :)

Showers today and Tuesday, more Thursday and Saturday.

The fog should give way this morning to clouds and showers starting around noon.

December 15 2014 showers.
December 15 2014 showers.

The totals will not be large.  Only around 4 mm is expected today up to 4PM and then another 8 mm expected up to 4PM on Tuesday.

We have more rain coming Thursday night, maybe 16mm and Saturday night.  The Saturday event looks like it could be another serious event, but it is far in the future still so let’s not be too worried about it.  Something to look out for only.

Have a Happy Monday!

P.S. And if you are wondering about a white Christmas, just remember the chances any year are less than 5% :)

P.P.S.

Sail pass! A huge turnout last night despite the spooky and very chilly fog.
