Much Needed Rain Heading For The S.E. States

Good morning from a chilly Octo - brrrrrrr morning in Denver. Lows here ranged from 20 degrees over the southeast metro where the most snow fell to about 27 degrees downtown and out at the international airport.

I was just looking at the forecast for some southern cities, including Atlanta, Little Rock, Memphis, Birmingham and Mobile.

They all have a 100% chance of rain and thunderstorms in the forecast!! This is excellent news for these drought stricken locations.

I am not sure how much of a chance you get to follow the news, but some of these areas are close to just having a few months of water supply left, according to reports.

It will take days of rain to put a dent in the drought there, but at this point -- every single drop counts!!

One area that is expecting heavy rain, but doesn't need it, is the Pensacola area. Just last week they saw up to 12 inches of rain.

It will be interesting to watch the CoCoRaHS maps for both Florida and Tennessee over the next few days.

Alabama will be coming online soon enough -- I believe November 1.
