Cascading Waters can be found at 135 Olean Street on the eastern edge of Worcester's northwest parklands, the Cascades. The Cascades are 350 acres of park and conservation lands along the borders of Worcester, Paxton, and Holden, Massachusetts. Home to countless species of plants and animals, the Cascades are open to passive recreation year-round.

Chance of Rain, Chance of Showers, Chance of T-Storms....

All is normal here.

It is partly sunny, partly cloudy, the lightest of breezes, and humid.
As of 9:00 a.m. our conditions are:

72.1 degrees F and rising;
98% humidity and steady;
29.91" of mercury and steady;
The Cascades Brook is at 4.6";
Yesterday's precipitation was 0.04";
Since midnight we have received 0.00" of precipitation;
The USFS Fire Danger Class is NONE.

Interesting note:
For the month of July we have received 9.22" so far.
Typically we would be at 3.54".
We are way above average for the month!

Since June 1st we have received 15.73" whereas generally we would have received 7.56".

You might think, WOW! This is a wet year!
Nope. Not yet anyway.

Our spring was so dry, remember there was no real "mud season" this year, that we are only a bit over the total precipitation for the year to be expected.

Final analysis: We needed this rain.
(Which is good because there is a chance of rain every day from now until Friday.)
I know that is tough to hear.
