The weather disco:

Just amazing rainfall rates for some folks…A sharp line between no rain and way too much rain 4 to 8 inches with flash flooding…A classic wicked thraining thunderstorm pattern…And guess what…Its the same old story here…The pattern is stuck with fronts dropping down in the northwest flow…Then getting stuck and waving around…Not much change in the overall pattern for several days…The large scale set up…We are caught in-between the two main flows of this summer…The big, hot dome of high pressure…Now expanding over the southern u.S. And that northwest flow…We are a little closer to the northwest flow and that will allow several fronts to work in from the north and then get stuck over the bi-state region…Each time a front works in and waves around we will see showers and storms…Some big rains at times for some…Still no big heat in sight for this week and thinking we get thru next week too…Better for the weekend…Partly sunny and in the mid 80’s…That takes us into next week
