The NWS Global Forecast Model forecasts the amount of rainfall out to sixteen days. It continues to forecast a pattern change that would result in the gradual easing of the drought in many areas.

Here is the forecast rainfall amounts from the model run this morning. For the first eight days of the forecast:
For days nine to sixteen, which is out to October 6th. Amounts in inches and hundredths.
