We really need a nice rain, the grassy areas have turned brown: gray and prickly dry over the past two weeks. But listening to the local weather reporters has me scratching my head. There is a rain front ahead of St. Louis which seemed a sure thing for last night and today, but now we wake up and learn it's slowly sliding south of us. Sometimes these fronts slide north. It just means we miss the rain.
Often the explanation is that the air over St. Louis metro is too dry for moisture above to turn to rain. Now it appears that the air is too moist.
Meteorology. Gotta love it.
