    The latest HPC prediction shows the rain skirting by just to the SE of Ames.

    Re: rain Saturday?

    As long as it brings some cooler weather, but not the rain. I will be happy. It can rain today, tomorrow, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, but not Saturday.

    Re: rain Saturday?

    Whenever someone refers to a less than 40% chance of rain by saying "Oh, its supposed to rain" I want to kick their chest in.

    Do you know what "supposed to" means? It means that there's a very high likelihood that the incident will occur. When there is a 30% chance of rain, that means there is a 70% chance of no rain. It seems that people generally understand the idea of probability, but just completely lose their ******* mind when it comes to weather. How do you not realize that even at 30% chance of rain it is more than TWICE as likely to not rain?

    So you're saying, there's a chance?

    My rant was more directed to society in general than the OP. Although he did say "rain saturday" before prefacing it with the chance percentage.

    I just saw a good chance to quote "Dumb and Dumber." So I took, if you will, a chance.

    Storm still moving pretty slow, my expert analysis is that we are in the clear.

    accuweather now says 18%. Not going to see any rain, maybe some clouds, but no rain.

    Re: rain Saturday?

    My unprofessional opinion says:
    I think most of the rain will stay in SE Iowa. TS Isaac is moving slow as hell right now and losing a lot of strength as it moves, so whatever falls in SE Iowa will be light. Ames will stay dry with partly to mostly cloudy skies. It should be a great day for tailgating. I'll be disappointed if I don't see you all out there by 8am.


    When Prepared, Fear No One.
