The active weather pattern that has featured rain and storms will continue midweek through Mother's Day weekend into the middle of May (possibly a bit longer).

Will it rain non-stop? No, it won't. We will have breaks from the rain here and there for a day or maybe 2 consecutive days. In short, the weather may stay unsettled for most of spring but it is forecast to be a drier and warmer summer season, which is music to most of ours ears, since in 2018 we set a record for the all time rainiest year at 71.82 inches.

If you have any outdoor activities that need to be done, today is the day to do them. A cold front will drop into the area tonight and stall out in central Virginia bringing the chance for a few scattered showers and storms tomorrow (Wednesday).

The boundary will lift north as a warm front on Thursday pulling in warmer and humid air, which will keep the chance for scattered showers and storms in the forecast. It is likely that showers and storms will erupt on Friday as a cold front will sweeps through in the afternoon.

That same cold front will linger in the vicinity through the weekend keeping the chance for rain in on Saturday. Low pressure will develop along the front on Sunday which will bring additional rain to the area and enhance the risk for flooding. It looks like Mother's Day celebrations will have to be held inside this year!

Drier times are on the way but for now keep the rain gear handy!
