November 30: Rainy Weather, Daily Links

WEATHER

After a rainy weekend, we’ve got more of the same in store for the beginning of the new work week.  Scattered showers this morning will give way to widespread moderate to occasionally heavy rainfall this afternoon, tonight, and early Tuesday.  Futurecast’s radar simulation shows that breaks in the rain are going to be hard to find in that time frame:
RPM 10A MON RPM 1P MON RPM 4P MON RPM 7P MON RPM 10P MON RPM 1A TUE RPM 4A TUE RPM 7A TUE RPM 10A TUE RPM 1P TUE

Total rainfall amounts will be higher the farther east you go:
PAUL RPM 4KM - PRECIP ACCUM

With 2″ of additional rain possible on top of already-wet ground in eastern Middle Tennessee, flooding becomes a concern.  The National Weather Service has issued a Flood Watch until midnight Tuesday night:
PAUL WATCH
That doesn’t mean the green-shaded counties will be underwater…it just means you should be on the lookout for flooded intersections, and there will be some full ditches and streams in flood-prone locations.

We’re on the warm side of this system — temperatures today, tonight and tomorrow will hover in the 50s, so all of the precipitation around here will be rain.  That won’t be the case for the middle of the country, where ice will be a concern in Iowa…
ICY TRAVEL
…and snow will limit travel in the Dakotas and Minnesota:
MIDWEST SNOW

We’ll dry out on Wednesday, although I can’t rule out a few early-morning showers along the Cumberland Plateau.  Once we dry out, we’ll stay dry through the end of the work week and into the weekend…imagine, a dry weekend!
7 Day PM
