18z RPM…A Lot of Rain Ahead!

Here’s our 18z RPM model rain output from midday today to midday Monday:


Last time I saw numbers this high was back in January when we had some flooding.  The WRF-GFS still is saying 5-8″ rain in the Cascades as well.  We’ll see if we get flooding out of this; the next 5 days sure looks similar to November 2006 to me…

    Mark, why oh why, is the former township of Valsetz still listed as a viable location? The nearest weather station I could find is on Laurel Mountain 4 miles NE. As long as I’m asking one question I shall ask a second, which model has the better track record , here in the northwest US GFS or the Euro?

    Guess the east coast will win this rainfall total competition this weekend.

      Thanks Pappoose,

      I wish all those on the east coast a safe outcome. I sure would like to ride one of those flights that does recon. and flies through the heart of the hurricane.

    I hope this upcoming storm system is intense enough that I can hear the rain on the roof.at various times.

    The wings are really gusty and the leaves have/are really flying everywhere.

    I woke up this morning to my tailbone hurting very severe and I now have to live on painkillers till I get a doctor but that won’t stop me from recording the rainfall.

    Most of the time the last few days I have gotten 0.40 the last week adding up to almost an inch in sloppy downpours mostly at night.

    Two nights ago there was a very heavy downpour between 12 and 1 and it was loud on our insulated roof.

    We have a tall attic between us and the roof so it’s very hard to hear rain unless it’s really intense.

    2006 was a disastrous time for the mountains! I remember Mt. Rainier was absolutely hammered, many roads and trails were damaged.

    Looks like our wettest October since 1994 is possible?
