There should be a least some hit and miss rain activity around the area this week. This summer has usually had a day or two each week with at least some rain, but a widespread thunderstorm complex is difficult to get this time of year and this year, probably even a bit more difficult. I’ve covered this topic before, but in the summer, severe weather is where a good percentage of our rain comes from. There is the obvious bad component to severe weather no doubt, but there is often far more benefit from the widespread rains those types of storms can bring. This summer, severe weather has been infrequent and so has our better rains.
