5-Day Rainfall Outlook

Here is the National Weather Service's rainfall forecast for the next 5 days.
Several things pop out:

  • Flooding potential in Colorado.
  • Decent moisture for the soybean belt
  • Continued drier than normal in the corn belt
I'll have some more thoughts with regard to existing moisture later this morning.

  2. The models, especially the GFS, have exhibited a 'wet' bias in Colorado for the past week now. That 4.2" bulls-eye near Denver (or so it seems) is extremely suspect, considering that 4.2" equals approximately 25% of our normal precipitation FOR THE YEAR. You need to consider that.

  3. Brian, point well taken. However, this is a human forecaster-made product.
