Rain, rain, go away! We'll be thinking that over the next few days, as a very wet weather pattern will be setting up across the region. There is the potential for severe weather tonight into tomorrow morning. A warm front in the Gulf will lift northward today and rapidly destabilize our air mass. Increasing moisture and highs wind shear will be in place out ahead of the approaching cold front, and that's why there's the possibility storms could ramp up to severe limits. Torrential downpours are likely as periods of heavy rain are likely in the stronger storms, rain totals will be between 1-3".
The cold front will stall across the area tomorrow then slide offshore for a short while Saturday ending the rainfall briefly Saturday afternoon through early Sunday. The front will swing back north as a warm front late Sunday through Monday relulting in more wet weather along the Coast. More heavy pockets are expected with another 1-2" by early next week. The front will finally moves out late Monday into early Tuesday, bringing some welcome sunshine back to the region. Temps hover around 70 through the weekend, with 60s in the forecast behind the front by Tuesday and Wednesday.
