The weather ahead is also volatile but not as severe but the land is saturated so any rain fall will be damaging. Rain is predicted Thursday, saturday, Sunday, Monday and Wednesday this week with the heaviest predicted on Thursday. The other factor this week is the wind again generally 40 mph winds from the West continuously this week. Stormy weather again so plan ahead. (
