Tuesday Rain update

This week will taut warmer weather for us in North Carolina. The headlines for the nation will be the return of severe weather and the possibility of a big snowstorm in Colorado. I will be posting two videos this week, Monday and Wednesday, so make sure to check back in for those.

Rain Tuesday looks to be a lock, or is it? I’m 100% sure that it will rain I’m just not sold on us getting a lot of rain. The area of precipitation will be moving in from out of the west tomorrow and arrive in the early morning hours Tuesday. We should see light consistent rain most of the day. This could stack up to be some much needed rainfall for us. Here’s what the top models are saying we will get through Tuesday night.

I am hoping that these totals verify, we do need the rain. I am however a bit skeptical with dry air in place over the Carolinas. I think it may interact with the precipitation and and limit the amount of moisture we get into the area.
