COEUR d’ALENE — Remember that sunny, semi-sizzlin’ 80-plus degree weekend we just had?
Kiss that baby goodbye. At least for the next week or more.
According to Press meteorologist Randy Mann, cooler, wet weather awaits. Maybe really wet.
Here’s Randy’s blow-by-blow forecast:
“Rain is going to increase today with showers and some thunderstorm activity. Rain and thunderstorms are likely tonight with showers and cooler temperatures on Friday.”
Take a breath:
“Things calm down a bit on Saturday with scattered showers.”
How bad will the damp dump be?
“I think we will get at least an inch of rain by Saturday. It’s possible that we could get to an inch and a half, maybe more. This would obviously lead to some area street flooding.”
And from the Remember When Department:
“By the way,” Mann said, “the first half of May was one of the driest in recorded history.”
For the not-too-distant meteorological future, Mann says:
“There is another storm expected to move into the area toward the middle of next week. The following weekend looks like we could get more rain. As we get into June, things should start to turn drier.”
Dry and hot, damp and cold. You’d think it was spring or something.
