Another Storm System Mid Week

The seemingly endless parade of storms will continue as showers increase late Tuesday, and into Wednesday.

The seemingly endless parade of storms will continue as showers increase late Tuesday, and into Wednesday. The bad news is that many rivers and streams are already near bankful and above, and more rain is not what we need. Many area streams and  rivers will flood this week, with  widespread low land flooding likely. The good news is that this storm system moving in midweek should not produce as much rain as the previous one did. Also it appears we get a break from the rain after Wednesday, when dry weather is expected for the rest of the week into the weekend.

As far as this next storm, it appears we'll see somewhere on the order of .25" to .75' of rain. The additional rain on top of what we've received lately will not drastically affect the level of streams and rivers across the east. The storm track will adjust  a bit to the south late week, keeping a storm system tracking to the south of the region. We could get clipped by some rain and or snow, but at this point it appears the storm track, as of now, is south of the region.

    Brandon, please put in dates if you can since the blog doesn't time stamp. As with Alex, we are losing track of the dates but you are spot on! Love the anticipation of the next prediction.

    Brandon-I love your forecasts, but I do have onr request, please put some dates in your predictions.I'm alittle lost on the next weekend/next week reference. Do you mean the week of 15 to 20 and the weekend of the 20th?

    I am actually backing off from a system next weekend. It looks like next week is more interesting. Also, I have learned from being in Norht Carolina that it can be sixty during the day and a snowstorm can come over night, which has happened with many of our storms. Winter is far from over and I still see plenty of snow chances. Stay Tuned!

    Brandon, the forecast looks too warm on the 20th for snow. Do you think this will change or will we see mostly rain?

    Hey Guys, sorry I didnt get time to post last night. The snow totals increased because the low acted in a tropical nature. Bands of heavy snow set up over certain areas. Our next interesting system is,yes you guessed it, next weekend and then around the 20th. Winter is far from over.

    It appears that the latest model runs, want to pull the Low Pressure Center a little further North than originally forecast. If this is the case, a lot of the East could see a decent ammount of snowfall starting tonight.
