Weather patterns are changing as a mid-level low is taking shape in the Eastern Gulf of Mexico and an inverted trough approaches from the Atlantic. This should eventually feed moisture to the north to meet up with the precipitation still streaming through the Northeast on the jet stream. The Eastern half of the USA is looking at a lot of rain coming this week. For Florida the rain may continue on into a second week as some models are hinting at an early start to hurricane season.
It's time to pick-up outside and clear drains. Some areas along the East Coast of Florida are expected to have over 7 inches of rain in the next week. It is also a great time to get in the gardens to pull weeds, fertilize and plant. With all the rain ahead a lot of growth is about to happen and once this all clears out in a few weeks it will be about into June and Meteorological Summer heat. Plant that summer garden now!
Leaving some self updating graphics for the rain event. Refresh or revisit this page to see the latest.
