Latest Computer Models Keep It Raining All Night!

Latest Computer Models Keep It Raining All Night!

The latest computer models are paint almost the exact same pic from the blogs I posted earlier today. Basically we are going to see wave after wave after wave of rain and t-storms through tomorrow! The bit of good news is that for racers tomorrow morning there might be a small let up in the rain to where they won't be running in a full blown deluge.

For tonight though, as you can see below there is another wave of rain that is developing in FL that will continue lifting northward through tonight that will bring us an additional 1-2" of rain. Then in the early morning hours is when it might let up a bit.... as we go through the day though, the rain will fill back in and we will see another 1-2" ... All in all I think we could see an additional 3-4" of rain for the next 36 hours!!!

I will continue to post updates through the night!

Much of the heavy rain will be ending Thursday night, but some lighter showers will linger. Overnight low temperatures will be in the low 70s.

Rain chances begin to taper off for the weekend with 40% on Saturday and only 20% on Sunday. Because of that, temperatures will begin to warm up closer to normal in the mid to upper 80s.

Slight Risk for Severe Weather This Afternoon

Slight Risk for Severe Weather This Afternoon

The system that we have been talking about the last few days is here and is alredy producing some flash flooding. There is also a risk that there could be some severe weather this afternoon in some of the stronger storms. The main threat will be wind with some of these storms, but also flash flooding is very likely as well. Take a look below and you will see that the SPC is talking about isolated tornadoes but I do not see that happening, I see mainly wind. None the less, these storms will be producing torrential rain with flash flooding a given across the area. Remember to turn around on a road if you can not see the road ahead of you!

More updates later.
