The forecast for the rest of this week remains dry with high pressure anchored nearby and the jet stream split to our north and south. It will be nice to finally dry out after a soggy start to our month. Its about 50/50 on wet vs dry days for the first two weeks of the month. Many of those rainy days were caused by a stationary boundary that was in place for several days last week, through the weekend, and the beginning of this week. So far this month we've picked up 3.11" of rain, which brings us near double the average for this point in the month. The average is around 1.76", with our surplus nearing 1.35". While Rockford on Monday received 0.89" there were some that received 1-3"! Our next round of rain arrives Saturday night.
