Beryl's leftovers... that phrase sounds like some good home-cookin' or something!
Interestingly, the circulation from what is left of Beryl is looking very healthy on radar this morning pulling moisture from two sources. The first moisture stream is being pulled on the southern side of the storm from the Gulf of Mexico while the second is coming in off of the Atlantic. The radar has exploded this morning as a result of the dual moisture-stream.
Simply put, rain is likely today and the high humidity drawn in from the spiraling rain bands of Beryl is the driving force behind today's forecast. Nothing more than that needs to be said other than it's not going to rain all day long and we aren't expecting flooding. Coverage will be at about 70%-80% of the area getting rain and a small percentage not getting much. Also, we aren't expecting any widespread severe threats, just some heavy downpours at times along with the dry periods.
This will be great for the lake levels and also good for yards and gardens around here that are in need of more rain. Hopefully we can get some 1"-1.5" totals from today's rain in a few areas, but the spotty nature of these tropical rains will probably leave some people reaching for more.
Drier conditions will come our way Wednesday and Thursday with another good opportunity for rain on Friday.
