Some rain is in the forecast, starting as early as tonight. The WunderMap feature on
w under ground dot com has some new features, helpful for hourly forecasting: Future hourly settings for radar, satellite cloud cover, and several others, including tornado. It seems to display changes every 2-3 hours, which would follow the NWS reports in many areas. I will use it tonight (if I can) when rain is imminent.

• Observations Feb ΙΙΙ MMX11

dayday ∑ O.87 inches rain since 4 AM. 4 hundredths in the past hour. 13 hundredths in the last 15 minutes. Later...0.69 inches The Anti-matter cloud is working well.

btw ∑ is the Greek and Mathematical symbol sigma for Sum, or Sum Total. In case you're wondering about the missing 1 hundredth of an inch in the totals above, it evaporated! Š actually, it rained a slight amount around 4 AM, if you could even measure 0.01 inch of rain.

• CERN is derived from the acronym for the French
Conseil
Européen

Recherche
Nucléaire
or European Council for Nuclear Research, a provisional body founded in 1952 with the mandate of establishing a world-class fundamental physics research organization in Europe; home of the Large Hadron Collider.

Compare NWS Forecast with the Mesonet Results

Feb 7th 2012 It appears we need to update yesterday's forecast. Click Here. It rained 0.11 in. and the overnight low was 9° higher than forecasted. Also, even the Weather Underground Best Forecast showed a 10% chance of rain at 6 AM—when it surprisingly rained! Must be oneoutof ten is better than none, as shown on yesterday's 3:10 PM NWS forecast above.


The rain fell slow, down on all the roofs of uncertainty
I thought of you and the years and all the sadness fell away from me
And did you know....

There are conflicting forecasts between WU Best Forecast and NWS for tonight.

2 AM Friday Morning Update

There were conflicting forecasts earlier. That has changed, as all weather forecasts and forecasters do. I went to bed, very early...with the chickens...as is the expression for rural people living rural lives with rural livestock. But I am not rural— justa cosmopolite hiding in a 'rural mural'.

NWS: Tonight: Rain, mainly after midnight. Low around 40. East wind around 5 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%.

Friday: Showers and possibly a thunderstorm before noon, then a chance of showers. High near 51. Calm wind becoming northwest between 5 and 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%.

11 AM Now rain chances are 10% It rained lightly already 0.14 inches in the 8 hours from 3 - 11 AM.

Friday Night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 27. North wind around 15 mph, with gusts as high as 20 mph.(this was changed less than an hour ago)

Both forecasts are similar were similar for Friday. Wunderground.Com is lagging a bit and should notice the 11 AM NWS forecast discussion and the major decrease in precip. prob.
