another MAY deluge... (am.24.may.16)>

My gauge shows 2.45" (6.2cm) of rain has fallen since just before 4:30am, and it is still raining lightly to moderately at 7 o'clock this morning.  The temperature here at my location in the upper part of town dropped to 53.8F (12.1C) during the past couple of hours, which is the second-coolest temp I've recorded this month.

It looks like we've got a rainy morning ahead... but I think we could see some improvement by this afternoon, though the risk of more thundershower development exists for the next 24-36 hours or so.  The weather system responsible for this latest period of instability and turbulence will move out by late tomorrow, setting us up for a return to warmer and drier summertime weather on Thursday into Friday.

Forecast details can be found on THE 7-DAY OUTLOOK above, and check back for a more comprehensive update this evening...
