Model Trends With Weekend Rain

October 11, 2012, 6:22 PM by Scot Mundt

Model Trends With Weekend Rain

Computer models have been picking up on Saturday's rain potential for about two weeks. But they've waffled back on forth on how much will actually fall. 

Here's an example. Monday's forecast models had an average of seven-tenths of an inch for Sioux Falls.  It fell to 47-hundredths on Tuesday and 55-hundredths on Wednesday.

Iowa and Minnesota have the best chance for heavier rain as the forecast models have been painting these areas with a half inch up to an inch and a half for several days.

The amounts in northeast, central and western KELOLAND are not as great.

In general, a quarter to a third of an inch of rain will be possible in southeast KELOLAND on Saturday, with heavier amounts in Iowa and Minnesota. 

There's a concern about thunderstorms to our south and southeast, possibly robbing some of the moisture from us.  Hopefully things will stay tame and we'll get some much needed rain.
