Rain returns for the end of the week

Rain has been lacking so far this month with only 4 days measuring rainfall. That should change late this week.

Scattered showers and storms should start up by late Thursday afternoon, with on-and-off rainfall lasting through Thursday night. The rain will be fairly hit-or-miss, so don’t look for a washout in the evening, nor widespread rain.

Showers should be more numerous Friday as the main weather system will be right overhead. Look for on-and-off rainfall lasting throughout Friday. Since the area of low pressure driving the weather will be close by, storms may be a little stronger, and could produce quick but heavy downpours. As the storm system moves out, isolated showers may linger through Saturday, but won’t be as widespread as Friday.

The weather sets up ideally for showers and heavy downpours. Low pressure will be hovering right overhead, and is able to pull in warm, very humid air from the Gulf of Mexico, and chilly, unstable air in the upper levels of the atmosphere above us. Since we will be under the intersection of all of this, we should see many rounds of rainfall between Thursday evening and Saturday evening.

Rockford has only measured 0.72″ of rain this month, putting us at 1.5″ below average. While we got tons of rainfall in June, regular rainfall from time to time in July is definitely helpful.
