It is the last day of February and we have had quite an active weather month. 

Yesterday the rain started out quiet, but as the day went into the evening, the rain picked up.

We received close to 3/4 of an inch yesterday.

Where this was not a heavy rain. It certainly will keep all the creeks flowing.

Today will be cool and cloudy. Any rain chances should go away in the next few hours.

Friday, a weak ridge for the day. Then Friday night, the next system rolls in. 

Saturday’s system is beginning to look better once again, as the models bounce back and forth.

Rain will begin overnight Friday into Saturday. It looks like we will see steady rain till around noon, then turn to showers in the afternoon. 

This system does look to have some subtropical moisture, so rain totals will be higher.

Looks like 3/4 to 1 1/2 inch out of the Saturday system.

Sunday is looking dry, and we will see some sun. This will also trend into our Monday remaining dry. 

Tuesday will start out ok, but the next system is looking to arrive 12 hours faster.

As the day comes to a close, we will see clouds rolling in.

Rain will start up again over night into Wednesday.

This 3rd system looks to have some subtropical moisture, so it might be a good rain maker.

Similar to Saturday’s rain....          

March is looking to start out like February, with lots of Rain. 

Enjoy, keep the sweatshirt handy, temps  will remain below normal.
