stormwatch 2: the vengeance

Mellowcat might be going on Stormwatch on Friday this week.  The forecast discussion has been hinting that the storm door would be swinging open at the end of the week, allowing a succession of disturbances to pass through.  Some of these are advertised as bringing heavy rain and high winds, similar to the Stormwatch sequence from January of this year.  Today’s discussion is going all in:

POTENTIAL APPEARS VERY REAL TO SEE 5-10 INCHES OF RAINFALL
BY EARLY NEXT WEEK... AND THESE NUMBERS COULD BE UNDERSTATED.
NO DOUBT WE`LL SEE SIGNIFICANT RISES ON THE LARGE STEM RIVERS
WITH RELATIVELY HIGH SNOW LEVELS ACROSS THE STATE. URBAN AND
SMALL STREAM FLOODING SEEMS LIKELY AS WELL WITH WIND DAMAGE
AND ASSOCIATED POWER OUTAGES AND DOWNED TREES ALL BEING LIKELY
OUTCOMES BY EARLY NEXT WEEK. HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK HAS
BEEN FRESHENED UP.

Mellowcat will be checking with friends of Mellowcat for reports from around the district once the action starts on Friday. Keep it right here for the latest Stormwatch news.
