PostSubject: A Flood Coming Today in Morelia?   Fri 05 Aug 2011, 09:03

I see on the Channel 10 News weather report this morning that Morelia is slated for an inundation. On their weather map of the country Morelia is shown with a constant downpour and a collecting pond under the raincloud symbol while the surrounding cities have pictured only periodic rains on-and-off. So far today is sunny but we know how quickly that can all change. Also, the weather reports are seldom spot-on with their forecasts, still it looked like a warning.

In previous days recently Morelia was pictured with very light showers while the other cities were receiving downpours. The weather people were pretty much correct with that, very light or no rain in the past couple weeks with a good typical shower only occurring every few days. Today's weather map was the reverse, Morelia seemed to be getting stomped-on. We'll just have to wait and see, but be forewarned, it may get heavy.

Sure wouldn't guess it from the current webcam picture but as you say these storms can move in quickly!

Weather Underground says 90% chance of a thunderstorm this evening with 1/2 an inch of rain. Not horrible.

Sounds not too bad. TV weather forecasts are frequently wrong. Have a link for that Weather Underground?

Hi, David.... I guess you must have seen something suggesting heavy rain at the time you posted. Actually, we didn't have heavy rain on Friday night, at least at my house. But the Wunderground site is usually pretty good, and has the best weather maps I've seen for our area of Mexico.
