First Warning Forecast: More wet weather this weekend could lead to minor flooding

Happy Saturday!

Expect an unsettled weekend on tap. Make sure you grab that rain gear if you’re heading out.

The front that brought us heavy rain Friday, will stall over us giving us rain chances for the next couple of days. A 50/50 shot for showers and storms today. Since the frontal system will just be sitting over us, any storms that form will be slow to move out. This means heavy downpours are possible. Because the ground is already saturated, it won’t take much to produce localized flooding. Some of these storms could also produce strong, gusty winds. Because the soil is so wet, we could see more downed trees. Temperatures will warm to the mid 80s.

A very similar day on tap for Sunday. Expect another 50/50 shot for showers and storms. Some storms could produce heavy downpours and gusty winds, so the threat of minor flooding and downed trees will still exist. The entire day won’t be a washout, but you’ll need that umbrella if you’re heading out. Highs in the low and mid 80s.

The front will still be around to start the work week. Expect more showers and storms. Highs in the mid 80s. A very similar day on tap for Tuesday. The front will finally move out, but we’ll still have the chance to see some showers and storms through the end of the work week.
