Tonight’s showers not a drought-buster

MRMS accumulated 12 hour precipitation (Click on image for a larger view.)

For this evening (Fri), the models are less enthusiastic about additional rain. The HRRR has much of the area with just spotty amounts, many areas with no rain. The HREF forecasts some rain, but scattered with light amounts. Not a drought-buster this evening.

The HREF has any showers/thunderstorms beginning this evening around 5-6 PM (a few isolated showers before then) and continuing through 11 PM or so.

HREF shows light, scattered showers—

HREF 1 hour precipitation at 8 PM this evening. Exact placement should not be taken literally with weather models. This is a 1 hour snapshot. Additional rain through 11 PM. (Click on image for a larger view.)

My Weekend Weather Forecast will be posted this evening.
