Weekend Weather: Rain, Clouds Ahead Of Us

Yesterday was a beautiful one with plenty of sunshine, but, alas, that's not the case today or this weekend.

Clouds and precipitation are in the forecast through Sunday. Today will be cloudy and there will be some showers. Although I'm expecting a few dry hours as well, it won't be a great day. It will be wet enough that if you're working outside it's going to be somewhat difficult.

A second area of showers moves in overnight and continues through about 7- 8 a.m. on Saturday. After that, it will be breezy and cloudy with perhaps a few breaks of sunshine over inland areas, but don't get too excited. Little League and soccer fields will be wet.

Another system with rain arrives Sunday afternoon. If you have plans to barbecue or do any outdoor cooking try to get it done early in the day if possible. The showers will be steady.

But wouldn't you know it? Monday will dawn sunny and will be a day similar to yesterday. Too bad we couldn't have had that on the weekend.

If you're thinking it's been a rainy month you are correct. Although we've had more total precipitation in the past for a month, by the time we get to the final day of April there will have been more days with rain than any month. In any year, that's amazing.
