These are RadarScope (RS) screen shots captured between 10:04 and 10:05 this morning. To orient you, we’re going west to east beginning with the southern most states of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama, then again west to east one notch further north.
While is is true that the center of the low pressure system that is/was Barry is over the western edge of Louisiana, it is not true that central and northern Louisiana and almost all of Arkansas are getting inches and inches of rain.
I will not bore you with more images, but looking at “storm total accumulation” on RS, I just want to bang my head on the desk.
Shreveport twitter is reporting trace to over an inch of rain today. How is that 10-20″ of rain? It’s not even 6-10″. In fact, looking at accumulation totals, no one except those in the south east corner of Mississippi got anywhere near 8″– the most I’m seeing is about 4″
I swear. It’s enough to make you want to tuck your head under your wing and make it all go away. Keep in mind that I did not want to scare you away with the satellite images. But you should have seen them– or maybe you did.
Just FYI– I think I’ve found something new on which to obsess.
