The cold front is still to our west and there is an abundance of moisture still in the atmosphere. We could see scattered showers and thunderstorms developing by late morning and throughout the afternoon. The areas that will be favored for development will be the areas that got the most rain yesterday.

The Canadian model and the Euro model are showing the highest accumulation potential. I don’t get to say this very often but the most accurate model was the Canadian model. I am not so confident it will repeat yesterday’s accurate forecast.
