The Rain Dance

If you have been doing a rain dance it looks like it might be paying off. Forecast models are hinting at up to an 1.4" of rain could fall from Sunday evening through Tuesday morning.

Here is a breakdown of the rainfall amounts from several different forecast models and the National Weather Service forecast for a few locations across the KFVS viewing area. Click on the image to see a larger version.

The different colored lines are different runs of the forecast models. Use the legend at the right of the graphic to see which color represents which model/forecast.

Cape Girardeau, Mo:

Farmington, Mo:

Paducah, Ky:

Before anyone asks, I don't have any data for the Missouri bootheel. There are only a couple of sites across the viewing area I have to work with using the type of data from above.

This is the same type of data I showed on the blog during the winter. Instead of the above images (meteograms) showing the accumulated snowfall these show the accumulated precipitation.
