We had a 70% chance for thunderstorms today, some which were expected to be strong. As you've been watching the cold front moving in from the west, no doubt you've heard about the heavy rain and severe weather that has plagued the Midwest over the last 2 days. With the Mississippi River bulging due to flooding, we were all heavy with concern for today's coming rain. We knew more rain would exacerbate the swollen creeks, rivers and the Mississippi delta all the way down to Natchez.
As the rain moved closer towards the Mississippi River, the humidity dropped, the atmosphere stabilized and a few sprinkles fell; not the heavy rain that was expected. Now you can blame me and say "your forecast was wrong" or you can see it for what it was--God's protective hand of mercy!
