The Perseid Meteor Shower is set to reach its peak Sunday night (Aug. 12) into the early morning hours of Monday. The Perseid Meteor Shower is known as one of the best meteor showers of the year and they rarely disappoint delivering impressive displays.

The Weekend Forecast:

Showers and storms will continues to plague the weekend's weather. The good news is that most of the storms are expected Saturday and not Sunday. This creates an optimistic situation for Sunday night into Monday morning where the meteor shower is expected to peak. Skies should begin clearing up some Sunday night and the threat of rain will subside. Even after the rain ends, the clouds will be our worst enemy. Hopefully they'll clear in time.
