You know, in the interest of the area getting more rainfall. After all, we’re in a drought and as most local worshipers of all things Irish know, the 10 year-old Irish Fest is one of the best torrential rain magnets going. The first fest got washed off the face of the map resulting in it having to move indoors to hotel rooms and the lobby of the Phillips House downtown. It rained so hard there almost wasn’t a second.
And this year’s rain soaked fest was accompanied by the headline,”Luck of the Irish Fest excludes the weather.”
Which brings us to the current drought plaguing the area…
The odds of Mother Nature relenting anytime soon?
“Well, remember, according to my theory the LRC, a new weather pattern sets back up in late September to early November,” says KSHB-TV weather wonk Gary Lezak. “It’s a critical pattern and no one knows what that means yet. It could be another dry pattern and it could be a wet one. No one knows now what it will be, but we’re still in a dry pattern now.”
Lezak hopes to get a reading and forecast what the future holds in the next couple weeks.
Unfortunately in the meantime…
“We’re still in a dry pattern now but there’s a chance of rain on Thursday,” he says.
Uh, stay tuned.
