As if the wet weather recently wasn’t enough, there’s a chance we may be adding to our misery with a tropical system by the end of this weekend.

I am not expecting Chantal to become a strong storm, but the tropical moisture that could be moving our way is a huge problem. The same pattern, which has soaked us for the past 30 days, is the same kind of pattern that will steer Chantal and its remnants our way by Sunday into Monday.

The pattern the past 30 days has saturated the ground and filled every lake, creek, stream and river around the area. So it will take very little rainfall to cause more problems. There will still be plenty of scattered heavy downpours even without Chantal, but here are my early initial thoughts on where it might be going.
