Keep the rain comingJuly 13th, 2012 at 10:33 pm by David Mazza under Weather
Another day, another day with rain falling across the area. Most of today’s rain came east of 281, with heavier totals east of I-35. The upper level system responsible for giving much of our area a good dose of heavier rainfall early this week will push back to the west over the weekend. This will slightly increase our rain chances for Saturday afternoon/evening, and keep rain and t-storms in the forecast for Sunday. It looks like after that, the upper level system will finally move far enough west and begin to fade as it moves far enough from its moisture source the Gulf. An upper ridge will build back in next week which should end most of the rain chances.
Interesting note: July is typically the driest month at Camp Mabry with only 1.88″ of rain on average. As of tonight, we already have 1.88″ of rainfall this month… neat!
Below is a radar rainfall estimate from our Vipir Radar. You can see where some of the heavier rainfall totals were, like near Jollyville.
Parts of our area saw well over half a foot of rainfall this week, for the official reporting stations, we still had some nice totals for the week. When you consider we are in July, these rainfall totals look very nice.
