If you are in need of some drier weather, you’re in luck! But it’ll come from the most unlikely of sources, a hurricane!
The US is bracing for another hit from a hurricane.
Michael was upgraded to a hurricane today and is forecasted to hit the coast along the Florida panhandle.
Sustained wind speeds are projected to be over 60 mph. At least six to ten inches of rain will fall, and there is a storm surge watch in effect along the Florida panhandle.
But the biggest effect Michael will have on KELOLAND is the water faucet will be turned off. At the same time that Michael will move over the east coast, it looks like it will take this rainy storm system with it.
Afterwards, the rain chances will diminish greatly. The overall upper level flow will be generally from the northwest which is usually a dry flow. Now the weekend may see a little disturbance that could bring some light rain to the Midwest but after that next week is looking dry and warmer with highs returning to the 60s!
So if you are in need of some dry weather, it’s coming. We just have to wait for Michael to take the rain away.
