It seems like we get more summer "wet patterns" now then we used to. Seems like there aren't a lot of days with widely spaced, tiny pop-up storms anymore. It is either totally dry or there are multi-day, widespread rain events.
Very tropical downpours this evening. Not much lightning or thunder that I could hear. With PWATs in the upper quartile for this year, I suspect we will be dealing with flooding issues if we get any slow moving/training storms tomorrow.
Got a little more this afternoon but I'm at under an inch still as well... since June 2nd.
Rain chances for today and tomorrow continue to decrease across west AL, I am concerned that this is going to be a total non-event here. Has barely wet the soil surface, gardens are still stressed and creeks still dry.
Some totals in Tuscaloosa County have exceeded 5 inches since last Wednesday. Last day of widespread rain will be today then we look to dry out a week before NW flow and troughing takes over the Central US again.
