Moisture To Spare

The numbers for post summer rainfall are impressive:

  • 8.26″   September Rain
  • 0.92″   October Rain
  • 9.18″   Combined Total
  • 4.63″   Above Average Rainfall (Combined)

It looks like we will be getting a break from the soaking weather pattern.

One look at Thursday’s full disk satellite image shows an obvious lack of clouds over most of the U.S.

The lingering upper air disturbance over New England is moving out. The pattern has shifted tropical moisture out over the Atlantic. An upper air ridge of high pressure and resulting dry air dominates the lower 48 states. Stormy weather over the west coast will be trapped on the west side of the ridge for a while.

The bottom line is that we should stay dry for a few days, giving the ground a chance to dry out a little bit.
