Rain...Rain...And More Rain!
Here are the radar estimated rainfall totals across the area courtesy of the Midland National Weather Service Dual Pol Doppler Radar...utilizing the GRLevel3.200 software imagery. Take the estimated rainfall totals shown for your area in images #1 and #3, then subtract the radar correction amount by using images #2 and #4.
For example, the radar is estimating that 1.32" fell at my home in northwest Carlsbad, Subtracting the correction of .77" gives a corrected estimated total of .55" near my home. I actually measured .39" in my rain gauge. While the Carlsbad Airport ASOS has measured .89". The Dual Polarization upgrade of the the National Weather Service Radar Network has greatly improved the estimated rainfall totals recently.
Valid At 9 AM MDT Thursday.
Valid At Midnight Friday.
A short video of heavy rain falling on St. Hwy 128 near the junction of Hwy 31, 12 miles southeast of Carlsbad, New Mexico this morning. You've got to excuse us Desert Dwellers because we haven't seen this in a long long time, and we tend to get a little excited when it rains like this here.
