Assignment: Predict the 24 hr precipitation amount (inches) for Waco, TX (KACT)

Conditions in central Texas have been pretty crazy this week, with temperatures stuck far below average in the 40's and 50's, with steady and sometimes heavy rain, leading to terrible river flooding. The same pattern should continue through Friday, with the possibility of heavy rain. Let's predict Friday's total precipitation amount for Waco, Texas, and hope they all get a break by the weekend.

Question of the Day: One of the reasons for the steady precipitation has been "overrunning" of a low-level cold air pool. What is overrunning?
