More rain is expected in the next week with another 1-3″ or more possible by the end of next week.

Here are the next three rain events:

  • Early Thursday
    • The best chance for showers will be along I40 and to the south where the humidity is higher.
    • The majority of the rain will occur between 11pm and 4am
    • A few spotty showers could be in the area mid-morning on Thursday
  • Late Sunday
    • Our area becomes wedged between a strong high to the east and a low to the west
    • South winds will draw up large amounts of Gulf moisture
    • The return of the moisture will cause a few showers or thunderstorms late Sunday into Monday along with cloudy skies
  • Next Tuesday/Wednesday
    • This is the big one
    • Tuesday evening looks the wettest
    • Probably some severe weather
    • Trending more towards a very heavy rain somewhere in the midsouth

Sunday Evening: South winds will draw moisture back from the south to the north.

There could be a few areas of rain even Saturday night but I think the best chance for spotty showers will be late Sunday into Monday morning.
