Model Runs

NAM: Rain early this morning until noon or so, then clearing with chance for showers. Enlarged storm system to affect area on Day 10.

GFS: Rain continuing in area until noon then clearing with chance of showers. Storm system starts to slide into region on Day 10.

Summary: Both models are remarkably close together in today's run. However, the GFS model puts the storm system to begin affecting the area with stronger storms and showers later in Day 10 possibly into Day 11. The NAM puts the system to begin affecting the area with the main storms in Day 10, earlier than the GFS. Both models have rain clear out by noon today with chances of showers for the rest of the day.
