We had quite the unexpected downpour on Tuesday night.  The station measured 20mm/hr around 8PM.  My tiny blades of new grass will have enjoyed that if they didn’t get blasted out of the ground.  The rain barrels (and reservoirs) will surely be full.

We get a bit of a break today.  It should remain cool and cloudy partly sunny as we prepare for another system on Thursday morning.  The rain will begin before 8AM.

wa_pcp3.39.0000It will continue all day and start to let up after 5PM but showers will persist through Thursday night and all through Friday as unstable air will possibly give us some rumbles of thunder as well.

It will finally dry out early Saturday morning and we should be relatively dry until late Sunday morning.  But I will update again on Friday with more details for then.

Happy Hump Day!
