Soaking Rain Day

We have a wet and cloudy afternoon ahead but fortunately, clear skies are on the horizon. Showers will continue this afternoon and overnight, heavy at times. We could see a thunderstorm but the biggest danger is the amount of rain expected. Showers taper off early tomorrow morning when the sun comes out. We could see some showers tomorrow afternoon but after that, we have a clear and warmer Memorial Day weekend in store.

Forecast Discussion

A system from the gulf joined up with a cold front, bringing us the rain we'll see today. Showers begin to develop in the morning and steady rain arrives this afternoon, ending early tomorrow morning. We could see a thunderstorm which would bring gusty winds but the bigger danger are the heavy periods of rain. Lots of rain in a short period of time poses a flood danger. This tapers off early tomorrow morning.

After the rain ends Friday morning, skies begin to clear but we could see a shower or two in the PM. Memorial Day Weekend looks just about as perfect as it can be. High pressure moves in, bringing a period of dry weather and clear skies starting Saturday. Temperatures begin to warm up on Sunday and become very warm to wrap up the month of May.
