|Are you ready for some rainfall? Look for it Tuesday night|
|From Staff Reports|
Oct. 23, 2006 - A little bit of precipitation just might be in our future, if National Weather Service’s forecast trends continue.
A mass of moist air headed from the west should begin to crest over the western half of Texas Tuesday morning, raising the probability of rainfall west of Interstate 35 by midday.
Sometime around or after midnight Tuesday, that mass of moisture — which includes remnants of Hurricane Paul — should result in a rain shower at the least, and perhaps a strong thunderstorm.
Looking at the weather service’s forecasts over the last few days indicats the probabilities of rainfall are on the rise.
As recently as Thursday, the outlook called for only a 20 percent chance of rain on Wednesday, with no mention of showers or storms on Tuesday.
By Saturday, the prediction of precipitation had risen to 50 percent Tuesday night and 50 percent on Wednesday.
Today’s forecast puts the chance of rainfall Tuesday night at 60 percent, with an 80 percent chance of precipitation Wednesday and Wednesday night.
