THIS AFTERNOON/EVENING: Rainy & Cool. Hi 55. Winds: E 5-15 mph.

TONIGHT: Rainy & Cool, Breezy. Lo 46. Winds: E 10-15 mph. Gusts to 30 mph.

SATURDAY: Rainy & Cool. Hi 50. Winds: NE 10-15 mph. Gusts to 30 mph.

MOTHER’S DAY: AM Drizzle, Slow Clearing. Hi 60.

Some areas exceeded 2 inches of rain by Friday evening with more rain expected tonight through Saturday. Additional rain of 1 to 2 inches will occur over the next 24 hours. See details below:

There is some hope for Mother’s Day. While we start with some clouds and drizzle, there is a chance that we slowly clear the clouds as we move into Sunday afternoon.

The start of next week remains sunny and dry with temperatures staying below normal. Believe it or not, the area of low pressure from this weekend will remain off-shore to our south and southeast as a remnant system. This may end up throwing clouds and light drizzle back to the Midstate by late next week, but widespread rain is not likely. Bottom line: things do improve after the next two days!
