that one gets here on friday. here is the next one. that one gets here potentially on saturday. that is too far out to look at that and say that is how it is going to go. as you look towards saturday it is too far. you lose resolution and this forecast model in particular, what it has done over the last week and a half makes the systems look really good, seven to eight days away. as we get closer to them they start to weaken and lighten up. however, a possibility as we approach next weekend and then, look how far out we are. that is now looking at tuesday, october 26th. we are getting too far out. another way, no rain on monday. tuesday, if we get rain, late in the day. really it is like midnight on tuesday into wednesday morning. that is the next best chance of rain. this is the one we got the most confidence on. it will not be a soaker. it will be rain similar or a little more than what we just got. then, thursday and thursday we are in
between systems, we can not take out the chance of rain. there is disagreement in the models that some of the system from wednesday will just kind of loiter. it will continue with showers on thursday. the main event will be early on wednesday. we can't rule out the possibility for a shower on thursday at this point and then the next system gets here going into friday. watch the bars go back up again friday, first half of the day. higher confidence, that is when a separate system gets here and look at saturday. later on saturday, the next one, could potentially get here. it will be busy around here if you look at the rainfall totals if you believe the long-range forecast. could be good. not going to the bank on that. only got 1/10th of an inch of rain on this one. this is why we broke it down with the bars. if you look at it, you will lose the nuance. obviously not. plenty of breaks. microclimate as l. the story
