Sorry moms, Mother Nature is keeping rain in the forecast

Cbus Weather Nerd

Sorry Moms I am just the messenger, but rain could dampen your weekend forecast.  We are going to continue to see a much cooler forecast for the next several days with lows in the 40s, and highs in the upper 50s to mid 60s.

As you can see from the video above of our latest Pinpoint Forecast, rain showers are on the return for the weekend forecast.

So here is what we are watching….a low moving up from the southwest.  This will quickly increase our clouds during the day and especially later on Saturday.

Saturday night, mainly after sunset is when we could see additional moisture moving in, and some of the rain that we see could be moderate to heavy at times overnight.

By Sunday early morning, that low will be pushing the heaviest of the moisture mainly in the southeast and eastern parts of the state.

While the data shows that we will have our best rain chances before sunrise on Sunday, and possibly more showers after sunset, with the low passing to the far eastern portions of the state, it is possible we could have a few mid-day showers especially east.

The other thing to watch for is if this low travels a bit more west, and this would increase chances of daytime showers on Sunday.  The good news is though that we will be on the west side of the low during the day, and the “drier” side.

At this point I think the best chances of rain showers will be early morning on Sunday, with some pockets of heavy showers possible.  The chances should decrease through the mid-morning hours, but then late in the day as another spoke of energy slides through we could see more evening to overnight lighter showers.

Also with us being on the backside of this low, we will be on an increasingly northeast, to north to northwesterly flow Sunday and into Monday, meaning temps will be running well below normal, with highs barely into the lower 60s and lows in the 40s.

Storm Team 4 will continue to monitor this low for Mother’s Day.
