A Big Rain Day

July 29, 2008

Snapshot At least it was a rainy day by late July standards.  I mentioned during the 10pm broadcast that only 4 times in the last 20 years have we had more than .10″ during the last 7 days of the month.  We didn’t do that today, and I don’t think we will Friday.  However, we seem to be stuck in a troughy pattern through the extended period.

I notice the 00z GFS has no temps above +12 at 850mb through the next two weeks.  It is the coldest of the ECMWF, GEM and GFS models (the main long range models I look at), so it may be forecasting a bit cool.

Not much else to talk about, so I’ll leave it at that for tonight…we’re just about to the dog days of summer.  Mark Nelsen
