It had grown in size and by Wednesday, measured approximately 12 feet in diameter and is now noted as 40-50 feet in depth.“It goes straight down,” said Sunny Yoesting. “You can see and hear the water below running.last_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Dry today once again with full sunshine. The dry weather is still on track to go through Friday as well.  The harvest window stays open!Clouds combine with hit and miss light precipitation off and on through the weekend, both Saturday and Sunday. We are pulling back on moisture even further, though, for the Saturday-Sunday period, looking at only a few hundredths to a tenth or two, and there will be plenty of holes…coverage will be at 60% or less. Clouds do linger into Monday and we can see an additional shower or two. We may not see a lot of moisture through the period, but we definitely do not see good drying weather this weekend through Monday.Dry Tuesday. We are also going to extend dry weather through most of Wednesday, as the next system looks to slow in its arrival. Rains start overnight Wednesday night and go through Thursday. We are keeping initial rain totals at .2”-.7”, and the only change in the forecast for this event is the delayed start.However, we are looking at making some major changes to the end of the 10-day forecast period. Some data suggests that a second wave of moisture move in on Friday, nearly doubling our rain totals. However, if this happens, it would be robbing moisture from our previously forecasted system at the start of the extended period, late the 3rd and the 4th. In reality, the combined moisture from the two events will be nearly the same…this forecast becomes more about timing. The map above shows combined rains through the entire 10 day period…it would suggest the heaviest rains still wait until closer to the 3rd and 4th. We will be looking at this period closely in over the next 36 hours.Either way, behind that event, we do go more active for the first half of November. We have another system on the 7th, and one on the 11th both of which can bring .25”-1” rains. The true good harvest window looks to close at the end of this week, or at least at midweek next week at the very latest.last_img read more

first_imgFormer Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood believes Unai Emery must keep Mesut Ozil on side at Arsenal and advised him to tell him whatever he needs to hear – even if it’s not trueThe German playmaker has missed Arsenal’s last four games after coming off with a knee problem at half-time in the club’s 1-1 Boxing Day draw at Brighton.Gunners boss Emery has previously also left out Ozil from his matchday squad for “tactical reasons”, but Sherwood believes the Spaniard would be well advised to not “burn any bridges” with Arsenal’s highest earner.“Surely he has to get Ozil on side? He’s one of his best players,” Sherwood told Sky Sports.“You can’t burn bridges with a player who is on £350,000 a week and is sitting there doing nothing.“You have to get him on side and get him on the pitch and do his best to make the team better.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“Matteo Guendouzi and Lucas Torreira are good at what they do, but they cannot see the pass like Ozil.“Get him on side again, talk to him, get your arm around him and tell him what he needs to be told, even if you mean it or you don’t, you tell him and make him feel like he’s the main man, because Ozil on form is better than anything that Arsenal have got.“Not only that, he is eating away at that wage bill, it’s wasted money if he’s not on the pitch. Get him on the pitch.“It might be against your principles, but if you want to get results you are better with him in the team than without him in the team.”Ozil has managed three goals and one assist in 13 Premier League games this season.last_img read more

first_imgLiverpool’s midfielder Fabinho is bracing up for the challenge of arch-rivals Manchester United on Sunday for what has been dubbed England’s El Clasico.Klopp’s men head into the clash 16 points ahead of United with Fabinho relishing the prospect of playing in another game that has additional significance for supporters, following his victorious Merseyside derby debut earlier this month.“I’m not really an expert on the history of this rivalry, but I believe it is the biggest rivalry in English football,” the Brazil international told Liverpoolfc.com.“They’re the two most successful teams in England, so history shows that there’s a huge rivalry. I think the geographical closeness, with Manchester being just down the road, adds even more to it.Top 5 Premier League players to watch for next weekend Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 11, 2019 With the international activity cooling down for the next month, we go back to the Premier League’s Top 5 players to watch this weekend.After…“We’re going to approach this game like all the other games and I hope it’s a night to remember, like the Everton game.“I’m definitely looking forward to it. When you sign for Liverpool you have these types of games in mind. With the passion of the fans, their support, we go on the field to give our best to put on a show for them.“Against Everton, the fans left very happy with the victory and the way in which we won, and I hope against Manchester United we can put on a similar spectacle: representing the Liverpool shirt and playing with a lot of desire.
