Wednesday Update on Flood Threat
Here is the forecast rainfall in the Great Plains between now and Independence Day. Some areas are forecast to receive more than five inches.
As I often advise, jokingly, unfocus your eyes when viewing this. In other words, look at the pattern rather than the specific point rainfall amounts. I believe, when this wet period has passed, a few spots may receive as much as eight inches. Note also the pattern extends into Colorado. The heavy rain in the Rockies (see below) is still in the forecast.
Good news: There is no significant tornado risk anywhere in the U.S. the next couple of days.
