Our soggy stretch obviously continued today, but this rain will continue wrapping up as we get into the late afternoon hours. This evening as a whole looks to be quiet, with our next batch of rain holding off until around daybreak on Saturday. Speaking of Saturday, here's a breakdown for your holiday weekend:
Saturday looks to be the soggiest, with occasional showers and t-storms expected. A few brief dry spells will be possible. Another half inch, slightly more for some, is expected by Saturday evening. The rain will keep highs Saturday in the mid 70s.
Sunday will start out damp, but we should see a pretty dry afternoon, with a mix of sun and clouds. The daytime heating may spark up a t-shower or two, but again, most will remain dry. Highs will be nearing 80°.
Memorial Day itself looks to be quiet during the early morning, however showers and storms will arrive shortly after daybreak. This activity is more for the afternoon/evening, but you'll want to keep the umbrella handy if you are heading out to any of the outdoor services in the morning. Highs will be in the lower 80s.
Long story short, many people will be out and about this weekend, or will be wanting to. Be sure to keep it on ABC 6 News on air and online for the latest forecasts. You can also track the rain with our interactive radar on our free mobile app, ABC 6 News Now. Severe weather is not expected during these three days, but still stay weather aware, especially if you are heading out on the water!
Have a great Friday evening & safe Memorial Day Weekend everyone!
