You took the words right out of my mouth - 1.23 inches |
last night, .07/in. since midnight. The monson trough is
bumping up against this latitude again which also happened the last time we got a large amount of rain. This graphic shows it well:
From the EPAC Weather Discussion:
CROSS-EQUATORIAL SW SWELLS WILL CONTINUE TO MOVE ACROSS MUCH OF THE EAST PACIFIC E OF 130W WITH LONG PERIOD SWELLS REACHING ALL THE WAY FROM PANAMA TO BAJA CALIFORNIA. COMBINED SEAS OF 8 TO 11 FT WILL PREVAIL OVER MUCH OF THE DEEP TROPICS BETWEEN 95W AND 130W THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD.
LOOKING AHEAD...A TROPICAL WAVE IN THE CENTRAL CARIBBEAN WILL MOVE INTO THE W CARIBBEAN THROUGH TUE. THE MONSOON TROUGH IS EXPECTED TO SHIFT NORTHWARD IN RESPONSE TO THE TROPICAL WAVE AND
EXTEND FROM SOUTHERN MEXICO ACROSS CENTRAL AMERICA BY MIDWEEK. THE MONSOON TROUGH WILL BECOME CONSIDERABLY STRONGER MON THROUGH WED ...WITH WESTERLY FLOW REACHING UP TO 700 MB. A SURGE OF SW MONSOONAL FLOW WILL COMMENCE BY MONDAY MORNING FROM 02N TO 08N BETWEEN 80W AND 100W WITH FRESH TO STRONG WINDS EXPECTED. THE PERSISTENT FRESH TO STRONG SW MONSOONAL FLOW WILL ALLOW SEAS TO BUILD TO 10-12 FT BY WED OVER THE E PART OF THE AREA. PERSISTENT STRONG SW MONSOONAL FLOW WILL BRING ABUNDANT TROPICAL MOISTURE INTO CENTRAL AMERICA. ASSUMING THE MODELS ARE CORRECT...HEAVY RAINFALL IS POSSIBLE OVER PORTIONS OF CENTRAL AMERICA AND SOUTHERN MEXICO THE LATTER HALF OF THE WEEK.
So we have to start paying attention to blobs again ??
