Good morning bloggers,
This weather pattern goes on day after day, week after week, month after month. Who is ready for something different to start happening? I know I am big time!
September is one of the wettest months, on average, each year. We usually have a lot of moisture available in the form of high dew points. Storm systems are usually still very weak but they begin shifting farther south during this ninth month of the year and this provides the potential for very heavy rainfall in the form of slow moving thunderstorms. These things are not happening this year as we continue to be in the same pattern that set up last fall. Something different is likely beginning to evolve, but this will be a slow process and it will really kick in by the end of the month into November. At this moment I know one thing…This weather pattern has been a very, very bad one for us weather enthusiasts and hobbyists. We have no idea if next year’s weather pattern will be even more frustrating, or hopefully much more exciting. I would lean in the direction of it can’t get worse than this one. It was fun watching Isaac turn our way and produce some drought relieving rain twelve to thirteen days ago, but besides that one big event it has been back to the same results. And, this next system coming our way tomorrow will be no different. We believe it will rain tomorrow, but not much.
The first set of data coming in this morning is already different on the timing and rainfall amounts for our area. The NAM model has almost no rain, one band of thick clouds early in the day and then it moves out of here by the end of Thursday.
Pike’s Peak is 31 degrees with snow this morning! Yay! Now, we will be working on the chance of rain in our forecast for Thursday morning on 41 Action News.
Thanks for spending a few minutes reading the Action Weather Blog. Have a great Wednesday and watch 41 Action News for an in-depth weather-cast today and tonight.
