A widespread rain event is likely to develop late Sunday night and continue into Monday night/Tuesday.

There are still some timing differences in the guidance, but it appears peak rain chances should be Monday and Monday night. Scattered showers are possible Sunday night and Tuesday.

Rain totals of 0.7″ to 1.4″ are anticipated. We do need this rain. We are still in drought.

Here is the official WPC/NOAA rainfall forecast. This will be adjusted as the event draws closer. This is the initial thinking.

Here is what the GFS model is showing for the system early next week. A few thunderstorms may accompany the front, as well. Green is rain. Blue is snow. Yellow and orange are locally heavy rain.

Severe weather is not anticipated, but I will keep a close eye on it.
