This mornings rain will end by 10AM. The stream yesterday did indeed decide to move slightly farther north than the forecast originally predicted).  Below is the forecast produced last night for the 2-5AM hours.

wa_pcp3.12.0000

The rain should taper off completely in the 8-9AM hour.

wa_pcp1.16.0000-3

We are back into the rain for Friday though with the strongest rain predicted for the 8-9AM hour.

wa_pcp1.40.0000-3

The rain is forecast to stick to the mountains after that, but I wouldn’t be surprised if the Valley was invaded through the day on Friday.  It is a fairly intense system.

wa_pcp3.45.0000-5

It should dry up by evening on Friday and Saturday morning is looking threatening for the Toy Run but at this point looks like it will hold off until the bikes get into town at least.  I’ll post another update tomorrow.

Finally, there is information about the Chile earthquake and Tsunami (4.5 metres) here.  1 million evacuated.  Another reminder we should be prepared.
