    Yep looks like we might bust here in ATL for the rain. Pavement barely got wet today. Clouds really didn’t help considering how humid it was! Not ready for Fall yet, but won’t be enjoying summer too long lol

    I was wondering where all of these 80% rain forecast were coming from, the coverage was never there on the shot range models, and now there is hardly any rain period. I'd give it 30% tonight and tomorrow based on the short range.

    Mother Nature probably felt sorry for the Cubs since they've already cancelled about 400 games already this season. LOL

    Hey guys, you only have to wait until the end of May, post tropical storm/min hurricane landfall to enjoy this nice, well deserved cool down. Now, hold your breath, pinch your nostrils together, pray to your assorted gods: [​IMG]

    1.35 total from yesterday and overnight! If you believe the HRRR, after morning showers, I’m dry all day long! NC mtns look like big winners right now, according to current radar.

    I really hope there is not as much rain for days like people thought. Not monsoons! They are trying to finish up my house. 5 predicted months in this old house hell/rat hole has turned into 8! We need rain though but please not sooooo much.

    I have had a few showers off and on, but nothing major. Looks like a storm is not far away as I just got a lightning alert from my WRAL weather app. I think we are going to have to get a lot more steady rain instead of these pop up showers to reach the totals forecasted.

    Looks like Shane is about to get popped. Hopefully it makes it up my way.

    As much as I like to be negative about rain today through Saturday look like great chances and I doubt anyone gets shut out. Tomorrow might be our best chance for an area wide big total day as the weak low near the FL panhandle comes north. That said I'm sticking with my .5 or less for this event and will gladly eat crow if I'm wrong

    Even in a moisture laden atmosphere like we are in now, you can look at the radar, see a storm cell heading directly to you with only 15 miles to go, and it can completely dissipate leaving you dry. I'm glad we have them, but this isn't like the frontal/squall line stuff that comes in and delivers us an assured chance of rain. Of course, Florida and gulf coast deal with this airmass daily so everyone usually does score in it, so if we can stay in this airmass for a few more days, most will see rain.

    Enjoy those cauliflower cumulonimbus clouds. One thing about the cloud formations in an airmass like this, you know where the storms are without needing a radar.

    Rosie,
    I'll try my level best to convince this rain to head just a slight tad bit west of due north of the other Gainesville ... ;)

    Charlie,
    Here's a "like" for the "weak"... ;)
    Let's pray and hope they all stay that way this year ... :cool:
    Thanks for the update.
    Best!
