Wet pattern continues


As if nearly 9″ of rain in March was not enough, it appears we will continue to see wet weather at least through Friday night. Rain could be heavy at times as another frontal system affects the region. A warm front will move north through the area tonight, bringing our first round of showers and isolated t’storms. Expect the rain to continue off and on Thursday and south wind behind the warm front advects plenty of moisture into the Mid-South. One more round will accompany a cold front overnight Thursday night into at least the first half of Friday. This round of weather could contain some severe thunderstorms and rain could be very heavy at times, particularly after midnight Thursday night until noon Friday. A Flood Watch is posted for areas north of Memphis, but don’t be surprised if that gets expanded southward to include the metro area if current model trends continue.

WXLIVE! (the MemphisWeather.Net official recording station in Bartlett) ended up with 8.81″ of rain for the month of March!

Finally, a quick shout out to my friends from the AMS/NWA Memphis Chapter! We had a great meeting last evening featuring NWS Meteorologists Jon Howell and Todd Beal discussing the recent Super Tuesday Tornado Outbreak.
