We can use the rain. We need the rain. Our drought is considered “severe,” which must be less than it sounds because there are no water restrictions necessary.
On the maps Connecticut gets an “S” not an “L.” We’re in a short term drought for now.
The 00Z GFS and 00Z NAM are in. They’ve been pointing toward Saturday being just on the bad side of OK. Sunday will be rainy and gradually turn more stormy as winds pick up toward evening. Sunday will be chilly too.
A few days ago it looked like three inches or rain. Thursday it was closer to an inch. Tonight it’s somewhere in between. Yes, this frustrates me.
The exact amount of rain doesn’t matter to most people. There’s a lot more fudge factor during the summer.
This will probably be another inside weekend.
