Monday Evening Wrap 6:45 PM

It rained 0.82 inches from 3 AM - 7:45 AM, ending with a sudden 19 mph wind gust. The entire NWS Shreveport Office forecasting area was under a Flash Flood Watch. Despite the absence of rain here after 7:45 AM, the FlashFlood Watch was finally canceled at 4 PM - 8 hours later.

I read the 352 PM NWS Discussion's mention of more rain for tomorrow and it seemed like a strange set of Upper Level open and closed Lows and Surface Fronts merging with a northeast movement to our area and then dry slotting ending Flash Flood Warnings for areas south and west of here that did get the forecasted rain-- 4-7 inches. (If the NWS Discussion Page link above has been updated, click one of the numbers 2,3,4 that are on top of the allcaps current NWS Discussion.)

Finally, thunderstorms are predicted by WU BestForecast tonight and Tuesday daytime, with maybe an inch of rain in the next 24 hours.

Just Past Tuesday Noon: Precip. 0.92 inches fell from 4 - 11:30 AM

January 10, 2012 Nowcast as of 11:31 am CST
Numerous showers over far southeast Oklahoma and southwest Arkansas along and north of a line from Idabel Magnolia Arkansas...will continue to move north and northwest at 30 mph...and decrease in coverage

NWS Shreveport Discussion 515 am CST
The rain and thunderstorms will continue to develop and move with the surface low and frontal boundaries as they lift off to the northeast crossing the Mississippi River by late this afternoon and into the overnight hours...

And so... we shall see if this happens.

»16:45 CST
Finally!! Now the rain is gone, totals the same as above, it's still very cloudy and overnight lows will 9° lower.
