The South is due for some rain this weekend, and hopefully, it will be enough to at least put out the brush fires in North Florida.

Also in Central Florida as well, especially in Brevard and Volusia counties. I believe there are stretches of I-95 that have been closed because of the smoke from nearby brushfires.

This should help, but it could be more than a lot of people bargained for with severe weather.

Really severe:

Tornado Tears Through Louisiana

Quote:
One person reportedly killed.

High winds suspected to be a tornado blew through the southwestern town of Rayne, Louisiana, on Saturday, knocking down homes, trees, and power lines, injuring at least 12 people, and reportedly killing one person. A Louisiana State Police Trooper said the area has been evacuated due to natural gas leaks, and residents have taken shelter in a town fire station. Nine people have allegedly been taken to local hospitals, one of them with serious injuries. The National Weather Service has issued flash flood warnings for parts of Arkansas, Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Mississippi, and Tennessee.


Rayne is "a little cajun town known as the 'Frog Capital of the World".

I think they are getting some decent rain from a lot of the Doppler radar maps I've seen. It's just that they are at such a deficit, it's going to take more rain just to get the Drought Monitor to look different.

You know what they say, all drought ends in flood. I think it will take a slow moving tropical system to wipe out the drought in the Arklatex region. Hopefully we can get a weak, moist tropical storm in the early season where they don't usually get too strong to aid the drought situation there.

Ugh, not over here! We're in a record drought and it usually ends with wildfires! But the Southeast looks a bit better if severe in a few choice spots.

The mercury flirted 90 degrees today. Summer is starting early.

I'm suprised by the lack of coverage here for the severe weather that has hit parts of Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina. There were a lot of wildfires in southeast Georgia near the Waycross area, so hopefully the rain can put them out.

Looks like a good soaking for parts of the Southeast over the next couple of days as the "Jet Stream" brings an increase in rain activity and coverage. This is great news for many, especially those folks combating the sporadic wildfires in S.E. Georgia and N.E. Florida.

We picked up a good 2 inches of rain from that band today. Was also pretty windy outside too.
