The rain has come and boy does it feel nice. 🙂

Just a quick update to give you an idea of when to expect the heaviest rain.  We had one strong pulse come through around 6AM this morning.  It was raining very hard on the Hump with water pooling on the road.

The next strong pulse should occur around noon and then back off a little.

The strongest rain of the day though should occur between 4PM and 7PM when we are expected to received up to 16mm in that three hour period.

It should then start to back off through the night and clear a little around midnight.

However, another pulse sweeps in before sunrise and should bring us the heaviest rain so far between 7-10AM on Wednesday.  Wednesday afternoon should see us just have a few showers as things clear up a bit.

Thursday will have more showers but nothing like today or Wednesday.

Happy Tuesday!
