Soggy Mardi Gras
Thanks to EarthCam.com for the image below on what has turned out to be a very soggy Fat Tuesday.
As the moisture moves from the Lower Mississippi Valley to the southeastern part of the U.S., heavy rain and thunder will be responsible for nearly 1″ to 2″ or more of rain over the next few days.
Take a look at NOAA’s HPC 3 day precipitation forecast and note the heavy rain forecast in the southeast. Also note the heavy precipitation forecast in the Pacific Northwest.
Atmospheric River Continues
Note the steady plume of tropical moisture stretching from the Hawaiian Islands to the West Coast. As long as this feature persists, we will continue seeing West Coast Precipitation chances.
