Timing for Sunday's rain and thunderstorms

Adjust Comment Print

Temperatures would be much cooler with highs in the 40's both Friday and Saturday. A few southern counties saw highs in the low 70s. This means isolated showers and a non-severe thunderstorm could be possible.

Isolated heavy falls expected and localised heavy falls may lead to flash flooding of low lying areas. Rain doesn't return to the forecast until Wednesday afternoon.

Windy weather will follow as the storm wraps up east of the Ozarks Thursday morning.

Former Google employee Tim Chevalier has reportedly sued the search giant for firing him over his internal pro-diversity posts. Google, on its part, says that employees should be communicated in a manner that complies with the company's policies.

WEDNESDAY & THURSDAY: Expect more rain Wednesday and Thursday and some thunderstorms are likely as well. Rounds of heavy rain and strong storms will be likely through tonight before the cold front finally clears the state by early Sunday morning. On the low end we could see some central Alabama locations like Alexander City and Clanton with highs near 60. It will be windy at times with gusts around 25 miles per hour. Monday and Tuesday both look to be quite pleasant with partly sunny skies and mild temperatures.

Rain will continue until about 4 p.m. with mostly rain along the coast and a chance of sleet, snow and freezing rain in northern parts of Rhode Island and into the the interior of MA. We could see anywhere from a half an inch to an inch of rain by the time you wake up tomorrow. More moderate to heavy rain is possible at this time with rain totals potentially ranging from 1 to 2 inches.

The wet weekend continues today, as a steady rain moved into the region very early this morning, and will last through the early afternoon.
