National Weather Service Predicts Rainy Mother’s Day Weekend
The National Weather Service predicts rain through Mother’s Day Weekend:
“Confidence is increasing in a soaking windswept rain during the Sat-Sun morning period, due to deep layer lift from diffluent flow aloft, strong low/mid-level frontogenetic forcing, and a developing 50-55 kt SE LLJ pumping in a Gulf/Atlantic moisture feed with PW more than 2 standard deviations above average. Models continue to signal potential for a 1-3 inch rainfall, with minor urban and small stream flood impacts possible if the higher end of range comes to fruition. Coastal flooding may also be possible.
“The main rain and wind impacts appear to taper off Sun afternoon into Sun night, but due to downstream blocking and potential stacking under the approaching Central Canadian upper low, windy, cool and unsettled weather may linger into early next week.
“Temps will continue to run several degrees below seasonable through the weekend, moderating toward seasonable once the upper low departs early to mid next week.”
