This Mother's Day weekend will be wet at times.  Temperatures will remain below average, too.

As for today, we're getting a break in the rain as of 9:40am.  However, notice the next round developing to our south and west, headed this way.

As that moves in this afternoon, a few thunderstorms will likely mix in with the rain showers.  With clouds and rain developing this afternoon, temperatures will hold in the 60s and lowermost 70s.  Look at the timing for rain and the progression of temperatures.  This looks excellent (very believable).

A thunderstorm or two this afternoon and early this evening could become strong-severe with gusty damaging wind.  The main area of concern for this to happen is along and south of I-40. Most storms that develop though will remain below severe limits.

Tonight, rain will continue at times, off and on.  Tomorrow will be similar, although the highest rain chance tomorrow will take place during the morning.

Once the rain exits the entire area late Sunday night, a fantastic week of weather's in store.  Most days will have low humidity and below average temperatures under a partly cloudy sky.  The only rain chance after this weekend arrives Wednesday into Thursday, in the form of an isolated shower or thunderstorm.
