Get outside and take advantage of the dry weather today because tonight and tomorrow are looking rather nasty.
Rain will overspread the area this evening and quickly become a steady, soaking rain tonight. Steady cold wind-swept rain with embedded downpours will continue through the overnight hours tonight and into Sunday morning, slowly tapering to lighter rain, areas of drizzle and pockets of mist over the course of Mother’s Day.
In addition to the rain, a gusty northeast (becoming north and northwest tomorrow), wind will develop tonight and continue throughout Sunday and into Sunday night. A few wind gusts to 30 to 40 mph are likely around the area and that may be enough to bring down some small limbs and branches thanks to the ongoing “leaf-out”.
The combination of onshore flow and moisture will equate to a very chilly and raw day on Sunday, with temperatures likely holding in the 40s for much of the day.
A solid 1 to 2 inches of rain is likely by the time the system pulls east of the region on Monday, and it’s possible some locations pick up a bit more than that.
