Storms pushing east; lingering rain to start the weekend
Rain showers will continue for Saturday
- Severe risk ends overnight
- More rain expected Saturday
- Temperatures will be cooler this weekend
Overnight we will still hold onto some spotty rain showers, but the severe threat is over. Temperatures overnight will be mild in the 50s.
MOTHERS’ DAY WEEKEND
The low pressure system that gives us stormy weather Friday will move out to the ocean Saturday and becomes cut off. This means we can expect lots of clouds along with a chance of intermittent, off/on showers Saturday. You’ll want to take the umbrella with you to graduations and have a backup plan just in case the showers set up over your area. A few isolated storms are possible, but shouldn’t reach severe criteria. Temperatures also will be cooler than average, only reaching the mid 60s and actually drop through the afternoon.
A high pressure system should move into the region Sunday which should push that cut-off low out into the Atlantic, delivering more sunshine for Mother’s Day. Despite clearing skies, we’ll keep cool temperatures with highs staying in the low-mid 60s.
Next week will offer more typical spring weather as temperatures warm back to the 70s, and possibly even some 80s by midweek. Looks like rain chances will try to build back in next Wednesday.
