Well, I guess that much rain overnight calls for the return of Bret the part time weather guy. I'm finally back in town after a way too long trip to Phoenix. I have the rain gauge again. Hopefully it's done acting up. I really appreciate Will covering for me; I'll bet he didn't know what he was signing up for! |
So last night it started raining around 6:30 and didn't really stop until this morning. (I'm sure the Jardin crowd really appreciated the timing.) We got 2.16" before midnight and another 1.94" since then for an overnight total of 4.10"!
Why so much rain? I can't find any mention of named or numbered systems or invests in any of my resources.
The Mexican weather site (http://smn.cna.gob.mx/boletin/discusion/discusion.html) mentions the remnants of a low pressure slowly moving across Mexico toward the Pacific coast well to our south, but it isn't in our region yet.
The Weather Underground forecast for Manzanillo airport (http://www.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/findweather/hdfForecast?query=manzanillo%2C+mexico&searchType=WEATHER) knows something is going on. They are forecasting 100% chance of more rain today, 90% tonight, 70% tomorrow.
The GOES IR loop (http://www.ssd.noaa.gov/goes/west/epac/flash-avn.html) shows plenty of wet juicy action still around this moring. Don't put away the umbrellas just yet!
PS, I'll try to add up the summer rainfall totals and post them when I get a chance.
