Was hoping for more rain

Posted: 11 Jan 2013 05:26 AM

Some of the forecast model runs made earlier this week were advertising a significant rainfall event on Thursday as shown by the featured chart. The chart shows the 6 hour interval forecasted precipitation for Des Moines from the GFS model that runs 4 times per day. Des Moines ended up with just over a tenth of an inch of rain. The forecast looks dry and cold for the next week.

Good = 75
Bad = 12
