Hit & Miss T-Storms Yesterday.
A few hit and miss thunderstorms dotted the landscape yesterday afternoon and evening. Overall the coverage and rainfall from these storms were less than Thursday's activity. Hope you like the CoCoRaHS Rainfall Maps I am using...this is a new feature that they rolled out today.
Rainfall continues to be below normal across the local area (year-to-date totals). Although scattered thunderstorms have helped a few locations to get closer to normal or average.
Scattered T-Storms Some Severe.
(Today Through Tuesday Morning At Sunrise).
Another round of late afternoon and overnight thunderstorms is once again forecast with our chances of getting wet in the 30% to 50% range. And a few of these storms could become severe and produce large hail, damaging thunderstorm wind gusts, deadly cloud to ground lightning, and locally heavy rainfall. Thunderstorms will once again move to the south and southeast.
Hit and miss thunderstorms remain in our local forecasts through Tuesday. As is typical in August the mountains have the best chance at getting rain and more often than not getting the most rainfall when it does rain.
