Rainfall totals since Thursday:
If you would like to compare what actually happened to what was forecast, you can do so.
Here is what I posted ten days before the rains began.
Seven days out.
Five days before the rain began.
Just over three days before the rain started.
And, finally, two days out.
I created all of these links because I want to give our readers the opportunity to compare weather forecasts to what actually occurs so that they can get a feel for the level of accuracy that is reasonable to expect. This situation was more “forecastable” than most. For reasons atmospheric science does not understand, there are times when the weather is easier to predict than others.
