This week’s forecast is pretty straight forward. It is going to rain a whole bunch, particularly tomorrow.

So you might be wondering when might be a time when it shouldn’t be raining. I like to use the 3 hour forecast from UWash. In the next 3 days, the only daylight 3 hour segments that shows no rainfall is Monday between 8-11AM

And Wednesday between 5-8AM

Notice the size of that front on the second image. Tuesday is going to be mighty wet. In fact, between Tuesday and Wednesday morning the model is forecasting more than 50mm of rain.

I do love the sound of the rain on the roof though.

Happy Monday.
