Heavy rain, then possible clearing on Mother's Day

FRIDAY: While the morning will be dry for many, it's the afternoon into the evening that will feature the development of showers and storms. Clouds will thicken up again Friday afternoon, limiting our daytime warming quite a bit.

Today, rain will continue for much of the day with the high near 51. Rain will be heavy at times with a rumble of thunder possible.

A band rain to our south & west will move into our area Thursday.

Like the past couple of days, today will likely also be rain-free.

Tomorrow (Saturday): Steady rain may last through midday, and showers keep us pretty wet until late afternoon. As the storm system exits, rainfall should begin to taper off around 8 p.m. Saturday. The map below shows very little rainfall before this time in Boston. New precipitation amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.

The extreme northwest and southwest tips of the state should see between 1 and 1.25 inches of rain, according to the weather service. The balance of the day will be mainly cloudy, but a few passing showers will be possible. Winds could gust as high as 15 miles per hour.

With the steady onshore winds and developing coastal storm, tides will run higher but should remain at or just below flood stage. There is no meaningful tornado threat over North or Central Alabama tonight. High temperatures Friday and Saturday in the mid 60s. Back bays experience high tide up to 3 hours later than the Atlantic Ocean. Sunday won't be a day to take Mom out for a round of golf. We'll have temperatures in the 50s to near 60 with more clouds than sun.
