Good morning bloggers,
A few sprinkles of rain and some light rain showers are quickly falling apart and moving through early today. As Bob Seger sang, “It’s Still The Same”. The same pattern producing similar results and once again, we can’t get out of this rut. The new LRC doesn’t really begin setting up until later in September so it shouldn’t shock us at all. But, amazingly this “same” pattern just produced SEVEN inches of rain around Boulder, CO with major flooding going on right now. Seven inches of rain in Boulder, CO would be like 15 inches of rain here. They only average around 2o inches for the entire year. Here is a statement from the Denver National Weather Service last night:
AT 1115 PM MDT…LAW ENFORCEMENT REPORTED CONSIDERABLE FLASH
FLOODING IN THE WARNED AREA. TORRENTIAL RAINFALL APPROACHING 5 INCHES IN THE LAST 6 HOURS HAS OCCURRED IN SOME AREAS. ADDITIONAL HEAVY RAIN WILL CONTINUE THROUGH THE MIDNIGHT HOUR...INCREASING THE INTENSITY OF THE FLASH FLOODING. FLOODING ALONG FOURMILE CANYON CREEK IS EXPECTED TO PUSH INTO NORTHERN BOULDER WITH RESIDENTIAL FLOODING EXPECTED. FOURMILE AND BOULDER CREEKS WILL CONTINUE TO RISE WITH CONTINUED FLASH FLOODING. SOUTH BOULDER CREEK THROUGH ELDORADO SPRINGS WILL ALSO CONTINUE TO RISE. FLASH FLOODING HAS ALSO BEEN REPORTED AT THE BASE OF COAL CREEK CANYON NEAR HIGHWAY 72.
So while Boulder, CO and surrounding areas are getting deluges of rain we are sitting here dry once again. Enjoy these ridiculously very light rain showers as they move through. Don’t blink, as they will not last very long.
Maybe I should start a sports blog. That is much more exciting right now than this weather pattern. The Kansas City Royals are two games out. Yes, TWO GAMES out of the wild card. They are off today. They are in Detroit for a “playoff” series with the Tigers this weekend. Every game is like a playoff game right now. The Royals need to take 2 out of 3 from the Tigers.
Have a great day!
