It looks like starting Friday we’re going to get our first monsoon of the season. The models are predicting around up to 50mm between about Friday and Saturday night with the strongest downpours over Friday into Saturday morning. There should be some wind with this too, at this time though it doesn’t look like anything too major. Mostly, it will just be rain.

Next week will be wet as well, no big huge downpours, but a constant soaking is in store.

Have fun! Slickers at the ready.
