Strong Storms and Heavy Rain
Good Monday morning, it was nice to see the rain over the weekend. Right now our radar is quiet but I’m expecting an active radar as early as lunchtime. There is a slight risk for severe weather today, main threat will be large hail, but I can’t rule an isolated tornado as well. Today is a very similar setup to yesterday. Some of the storms could produce heavy rainfall, with localized flooding being more of an issue. I’ve seen reports anywhere from one to six inches of rainfall over the last several days. Satellite shows lots of cloud cover, and it will stay overcast through the next 24 hours, with a few peaks of sunshine possible late in the day. We’ll see more cloud cover than anything. Temperatures right now are in the 60’s and our winds are coming out of the south drawing in more moisture. An area of low pressure continues to spin just to the west of Abilene giving us the lift we need for several rounds of rainfall. The low will slowly move east over the next couple of days. Rain ramps up again around lunchtime through this evening. More rain is possible Tuesday morning and afternoon, however, severe threat moves east tomorrow. By Wednesday the low will be east of us and the clouds will begin to clear. Highs will be in the 80’s for the middle portion of the week. Today temperatures will be in the 70’s with lots of cloud cover and periods of afternoon rain. Rain is still possible tonight, but not as heavy. The seven-day shows another chance for rain today and tomorrow with clearing on Wednesday. Another low comes in next week. Highs on Wednesday will be in the 80’s.
