Tuesday – A Few Showers, Chance T-StormJune 24th, 2014 at 4:25 am by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
At mid-morning, rain is falling generally southeast of a line from S. Haven to G.R. to Big Rapids. Slowly the rain area will lighten-up, shrink and move east. We will still have a chance of a shower this afternoon, thought they will become few and far between. Severe weather is unlikely. The Storm We’re in the General Thunderstorm Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center today. Rainfall for today from the overnight model runs: NAM (car) 0.21″, European 0.18″, GFS 0.08″. In this humid air, I’d go with the highest number and maybe then some. For Wednesday the NAM has 0.02″, the Euro. 0.37″ and the GFS 0.13″. Thursday is our best shot at a dry day. For Friday, the Euro. has 0.24″ and the GFS 0.07″. For Saturday PM, the Euro has 0.36″ and the GFS 0.08″. For Sunday the Euro. has 0.05″ and the GFS has 0.16″…and for Monday, the Euro. has 0.13″ and the GFS has 0.41″. The grass is going to stay green. Also, tornado caught on home security camera.
Speaking of rain…Savannah, GA recorded 6.65 inches of rain Monday. This is the wettest June day on record since records began in 1871…5″ of rain fell in 5 hours at Brook, IN…strong winds, heavy rain and snow in Australia…Finally, largest company in each state by revenue.
