AFTER A FAIRLY NICE DAY ON SATURDAY, SUNDAY LOOKS TO BE WET BUT TEMPERATURES WILL BE ON THE MILD SIDE THROUGHOUT THE WEEKEND… DRY AND MORE SEASONAL WEATHER RETURNS ON MONDAY

A high pressure system well of the coast is producing a southeast flow of air off the Atlantic Ocean. This will produce a few clouds today (Saturday), but rain is not expected to move in until Sunday morning. The rain and showers will be the result of a frontal system moving slowly eastward and a low pressure system developing to our southwest. Saturday should turn out quite nice with mild temperatures and the sun will be out at times. Clouds will increase later Saturday and Sunday looks to be quite wet as moisture and lift increases over the region. The NWS is already saying that there is a 100% chance of rain on Sunday! There might be some thunder but nothing severe is expected. Temperatures will again be on the warm side on Sunday as winds will be mostly out of the south. The rain should end by Sunday night and Monday should be fair and seasonable.

This past Monday February 28th, we picked up 0.75 inches of much needed rainfall. We may see similar amounts on Sunday and possibly more in some spots.

Thanks for reading and have a great day!
