Hooray! South Jersey FINALLY gets some much needed rainfall

“Raindrops keep falling on my head….” Ah, the sound of rain tapping on your roof. I even went outside and danced in the rain!

Most of us saw a nice soaking rain. We did have a few flooding issues, especially across the eastern suburbs of Philadelphia, but that has since settled as the rain ended this afternoon. The majority of South Jersey saw at least 1 to 2.6 inches of rain. The highest rainfall totals were to the south and southeast with 4 inches reported in Dennisville and around 3 inches in Atlantic City.

The EUROPEAN MODEL verified leading up to today’s rain. The model had consistently shown 1 to 4 inches of rain, with a stripe of 3 to 4 inch amounts to the south and east – which verified nicely!

Yes, the drought has “eased” a bit with today’s rainfall, but we could still use more. However, we obviously do not need it all at once, so we’ll just be happy for now and hope for more in the days to come.

Looking ahead to next week, a cold front will move across the region next Monday into Tuesday with a low-pressure system to the south, pumping in moisture from the Gulf of Mexico. This could bring us another 1 to 2 inches of rain.

The current forecast blends nicely with the latest 6 to 10 Day Precuipitation Outlook from the Climate Prediction Center. The latest guidance shows near to above average precipitation for next week. It will take time, but there are deffinitely encouraging signs to slowly wipe away the drought!
