Wicked Storm East, New Storm West

Wow the CoCoRaHS maps have really tracked the progress of Tropical Storm Ida and  the remnants since making landfall along the Gulf Coast earlier this week.

The map above is from 2 days ago when the storm was dumping heavy rain over north Georgia and the western Carolinas. What a nice footprint!

Today more heavy rain, high surf and blowing sand will pelt the coastal areas of the mid-Atlantic as the coastal low (remnants of Ida) slowly move north.

Much of the western US will see a cool and unsettled weekend ahead as a storm system impacts the region.

Our facebook page for CoCoRaHS has been busy the past few days with a lot of chit chat among members! That is excellent!

Observer NC-CL-01 has seen a lot of impact from the coastal low -- with nearly 5.00 inches of rain as of his post on Facebook yesterday -- I am sure that number is still climbing!

Station FL-ES-2 also checked in on Facebook before Ida made landfall -- she was expecting alot of rain just 6 miles east of the Alabama and Florida state line in the far western panhandle.

 Welcome to a few new stations who checked in on our Facebook page....Matt from Custer County, Montana and Karen from Maine!

I was not able to process my pictures from the new weather station dedication yesterday in Denver but will hopefully tonight and try to post tomorrow!
