RAIN SHOWERS ARE IN THE FORECAST FOR CINCO DE MAYO. — Got plans for Sunday, May 5th, also known as Cinco de Mayo? Add the umbrella to the mix.
Rain showers and storms have been in the forecast for the past several days and this trend is continuing into the unofficial holiday weekend.
Another front will linger across the region over the weekend helping to keep rain in the forecast. For Saturday, with a front nearby and warm and humid air in place, there is a chance for isolated severe storms. Any severe storms that develop could produce damaging wind and hail.
In addition, an area of low pressure will travel northeast across the region and along that front, helping to bring more rain and thunderstorms to the region, starting late Saturday and continuing into Sunday.
For Sunday morning, heavy rain showers are forecast for the region, which will impact any outdoor plans.
Another wave of rain showers and thunderstorms is possible during the afternoon before all the active weather finally clears the region.
Once the wet weather clears out, quieter weather is expected for Sunday evening.
So, make sure to grab the drinks, keep the umbrella handy, and have fun this Cinco de Mayo no matter what the weather brings.
