FORECAST DISCUSSION:

Good morning and happy Mother’s Day! 

It’s a wet end to the weekend ahead of more below normal temperatures for the workweek.

A warm front started to lift into the area bringing back rain showers. While we could see a few breaks in the showers this morning, most of the day will be rainy and chilly.

Early morning low temperatures are in the 40s, and will only rebound to a highs around 50s, which is about 15 degrees below normal for t his time of year. Even with the cooler air in place, the chance for thunderstorms will increase through the afternoon and evening as an area of low pressure moves in behind the warm front. The primary threats with afternoon thunderstorms will be pockets of heavy rain and a strong wind.

Rainfall totals from the event will be around 1-2″. This is not enough to create a widespread flood concern, but will continue to watch for river flooding and keep an eye out for areas that are more prone to flood concerns.  

An associated cold front will sweep through late Sunday night and bring an end to the rain. This will give us a dry, but chilly start to the week.  We’ll wake up to clouds and lows around 40 degrees on Monday.  Even as clouds clear out through the day, highs will be similar to today and only reach the mid to upper 50s, not lower 70s like we’d be used to this time of year.

High pressure will take charge again on Tuesday and Wednesday.  This will help to keep us dry and add back in sunshine.  Even with the sunshine though, we’ll just see a slow warming trend with highs climbing to the low to mid 60s, which is still about 10 degrees below normal for this time of year. 

Have a great weekend!

Have a great day!
