Less than a week left to participate in the contest. I updated the prize list last Saturday. 28 prizes are available in the contest, 9 of those are cash! The Second Annual Contest Drawing Version 4 Updated 5/15/21
A few pop-up storms are possible this afternoon into this evening. Pin-pointing, exactly where that is going to happen, is difficult. Areas that received precipitation yesterday will be favored for thunderstorm development today. Today’s storms will be convection-driven. Leftover moisture in the atmosphere combines with daytime heating to produce the storms.
Thursday, at the moment, looks like a pretty pleasant day. On Friday the models are in very good agreement that a deep low-pressure system will finally track favorably over the area. I am trying not to get too excited about it yet. Most of the systems this spring have not had a favorable track for us. The models have had a favorable track for Friday’s system for a few days now. I may have to wash my car again before Friday, that may help.
Here are the latest model runs for precipitation through Saturday morning.
Next update Thursday. Thanks for participating in the contest!
