Amazing Rain!

Well, it looks as though we did miss out on the severe weather!!!! Thank goodness! We in the Lafayette, area did however see some brief heavy downpours at times but as we head more to our north in our northern counties like Newton, Benton, and Jasper, They seen little to none! What a difference a few miles can make. Lafayette, had a final rainfall total of 0.50" Inches! You can see that once the cold front moved over our area we seen more of those widespread showers over take much of the southern parts of the WLFI viewing area. Take a look below. This is how things looked on my Doppler Radar at around 12:46pm yesterday afternoon.
Once that cold front moved in we was watching the scattered showers pop up every where. Whats so funny or cool about this is if we look closely at this radar image you can see that the rain showers just kinda "STOP" once they get about half way in Benton, county! It really looks amazing! Nothing was severe which is good news. All the real heavy stuff did as we said in one of our older post, Stayed to our south and! Which is fine with us right? ;]

Now today I think we will keep it dry with Partly cloudy to mostly clear skies! Even better is the winds will be nice and light between 10 and 15 mph. Also I think we start out the work week dry as well. With more Partly cloudy skies and winds even lighter between 3 and 5 mph. It just don't get much better then this!

Until then I'M going to go enjoy the rest of my weekend as well as you all should! I will check back real soon. Have a GREAT weekend everyone....................
