Showers and storms expected over the weekend

Weather

The persistent pattern of rain each afternoon is likely to continue over the long holiday weekend.

A few pockets of fog are expected to develop in the region and linger into the morning hours but the larger picture has the rain returning in the heat of the day.

As has been the case over the past several days, showers and storms will push across the area after the noon hour. The rain may be heavy at times and the potential for localized flooding is possible. There may also be gusty winds that accompany the storms, with dangerous lightning as well.

Saturday and Sunday will be similar to Friday with showers and storms igniting in the heat of the day. If you are camping or planning any outdoor activities this long holiday weekend, be sure to keep an eye to the sky and be mindful of area creeks and streams. Water will tend to run off faster this weekend since the ground has become increasingly saturated. Flooding along normally quiet creek beds may occur quickly.

Sunday may be the more active day as a cold front will push through the Commonwealth and churn up the atmosphere a bit more than what we have seen this week.
