Rain amounts...

Just looking at some weather models, and this one is pumping out a huge amount of precip across IL and other parts of the midwest.  Going ot be some soggy planting conditions...more rain in the extended too...and not much warm air to speak of, especially on the north end (like here in Wisconsin)...  Precip accumulation the next 84 hours...

Re: Rain amounts...

Flying into Chicago, on to Cedar rapids today. Sure hope it calms down in about 14 hours! Glad to see the rain though.

Re: Rain amounts...

Up all night listening to thunder. Rained very heavy here in ECIL tonight. Ill get the totals in awhile. Accu is calling for another 3.75 tomorrow/Thursday. We were dry even though we were "out of the drought" but with 1.5 last week and now this we are gonna be soggy. Blessing or a curse? With no warm weather anywhere in sight I guess I'll take the moisture and not worry about planting. But needless to say we are delayed here.

Re: Rain amounts...

Morning Buckley : No rain here ---------- yet , looked at the radar at 3 am and it looks like your hoging it all , lol

 

BTW you must be close to the Champaign -- Danville area ?

 

Need the wind to lay OR change directions -- ( from the South to the North ) so I can finish the 60 acres I didn't do last fall .

 

Have a good one

Re: Rain amounts...

Nice pic of your weather model Frank,  copious amounts of rain headed for the heart of the I states.  I have 32* at 7AM (cia).  We are having very little sunshine here too.  I took a walk yesterday and checked my tile outlets, one with about 2 miles of tile, was running at a rate of 2 gal a minute, the other shorter one about 1 cup a minute.  That is a start. 

The only thing planted around here where some oats the other week and some tomatoes in the greenhouse.:smileyhappy:

Re: Rain amounts...

Yes,  that's the one I follow.  Very impressive.  Maybe you can do "follow up" and see how accurate their forecast was.
