Super soaker storm to dump up to 2 inches of rain Saturday

Super soaker storm to dump up to 2 inches of rain Saturday

So the weather still looks great for Mother's Day. Showers will be possible through the overnight and into the day tomorrow before sunshine returns for Mother's Day!

The heaviest rain is expected to occur Friday night into Saturday.

Friday will be similar to the past several days with clouds and some spells of sunshine. There won't be any showers, however. We should be able to find at least some peeks of blue sky and sun early Saturday. You'll notice the humidity getting worse over the course of the week as well.

Slight chance of showers will wrap up the weekend, near 40 percent throughout the GLOW region.

Sunday: Rain likely, mainly before noon. The longer range forecast looks warm with above average temperatures.

As mentioned above, most (if not all) rainfall should end by the time you way up Sunday morning.

There is some hope Mother's Day afternoon is a bit drier.

The rain may impact the afternoon commute, especially in western portions of the WBTV viewing area and any outdoor plans for Friday evening. Temperatures hold steady for a few hours in the 50s before dropping into the 40s by morning. All in all, it will be a rather miserable Sunday.

With the steady onshore winds and developing coastal storm, tides will run higher but should remain at or just below flood stage. Less than a tenth of an inch of rain is expected today. This is possible. Our drought is officially over, but this rainfall will give us a nice cushion when it does turn drier next week. Such downpours are enough to cause "the usual heavy rain problems", including poor visibility, ponding on roadways, and flooding of low-lying areas. I do recommend checking those sump pumps before the storm arrives.
