8/2 – Brittany’s “Wet Again” Tuesday Afternoon Forecast

Deep moisture from the Gulf of Mexico continues to stream into the area with model soundings showing precipitable water values well above 2 inches, and as high as 2.2-2.3 inches.

Not much in the way of change is expected tomorrow or Thursday. As mentioned yesterday, the continued rainfall across the area will accumulate as the week continues and so to likely are the outlook levels. The day 2 outlook from WPC now has parts of our area in a slight risk of excessive rainfall and that could be expanded in scope later as the rainfall from today is added into the mix.

Thursday Night through Monday, the wet pattern will continue across the area with only a possible slight reprieve over the weekend. Unfortunately, that will be very slight as the only real change will be slightly lower precipitable water values. Rain chances will continue to be rather high regardless and as mentioned earlier, rainfall amounts are likely to be rather high for the week by the time Sunday rolls around. Heavy rain will continue to be a concern and the ground will be extremely saturated in many areas by then. Looking into the beginning of next week does not show much in the way of any significant change and we will continue the wet pattern into the new week.
