Here is the forecast moisture for the next 5 days ending at 6pm Saturday evening:
On Friday, I wrote a posting, Is This the Long-Awaited Pattern Change? which described my analysis of what appeared to be a good chance of significant moisture in the Plains and Midwest the middle third of December. That forecast still looks good.
This is the new (00Z) NWS GFS model valid at 9pm next Monday evening. It shows a strong upper atmospheric low near Lubbock (arrow) which is an excellent pattern for moisture in the central and southern Plains.
Here is the forecast moisture through 9am Tuesday morning (11th).
And, the good news doesn't stop here. There is at least one more storm that will cause additional rain and/or snow in the drought areas of the Plains and Midwest before the middle third of the month is over!
Just remember: You heard it here first!
