More Rain on the Way

It is a broken record across the southeast by now, but more rain is on the way. The unsettled pattern is due to an atmospheric river of moisture that has continuously brought the threat of showers and storms to the region. The unsettled pattern will not release its grip on the region over the next week.

Over the past 2 weeks many places have seen way above normal precipitation, and as we continue through the next week we will only be adding to that total.

NOAA Precipitation Analysis Over the Past 14 Days:

The amount of rain that has fallen is 400% to 600% above normal in some places over this timespan.

Percentage From Normal:

More rain is on the way, but nothing of the recent magnitude for the region.
