Tis the season for dirty and overflowing gutters. Two separate systems are moving our way, with only a few hours break between them. The first system was here mid-day Friday; the other will be Saturday evening.
First, the rain. From Friday until Monday, we could get up to 3″ of rain. *cough gutters* Heavy at times. We’re all used to that, though. Rain graph posted.
Now, the fun stuff… Wind. Both Saturday and Sunday will be windy, but Sunday’s gusts could be a tad higher. Saturday’s gusts may be around 35mph, and Sundays could be in the low 40mph range. This is based on the current models and could change. The wind graph posted is showing 4 pm Sunday.
Snow…. None for us down here, but the passes will get clobbered with about 3 feet from Friday to Sunday. Plan accordingly if traveling over the passes this weekend. On Monday, the temperatures will rise into the 40s in the passes and will change over to rain. Not good.
As said before, 3 feet of snow in the passes and then changing to rain is never good. Flooding is possible on Tuesday/Wednesday in the normally flood-prone areas. This does not look like a major or widespread flood event, but keep an eye on things if you live in one of those areas. Flood chart posted.
We currently have no warnings/advisories for any weather events for the lowlands, but that could change. I’ll make another post if that changes.
