Yes, we are sorry for all the Mom's ... the weather looks crummy for Mother's Day. But if that is all that goes wrong for our Mom's ... that's good because we can live with lousy weather ...
Unfortunately the weather has decided to hold on the early spring in the Great Lakes and Northeast, and in the South it has become summer. And we are right in the middle = showers and storms.
For example: As of 11 am it is near 80 in Pittsburgh and 45 in Erie. Yes, showers and storms are present around Erie too.
We may not see that sharp a contrast in eastern PA, but you get the idea. There is a clash going on and it means rain. And this battle will rage most of the upcoming next week, but we look to be on the warmer, not colder side once past Mother's Day.
In fact, next week we could tap into some tropical moisture, enhancing our rainfall. And making it feel humid too.
In a nut shell next week will be wet, but it will not rain all the time. It may rain 15% of the time, and rain heavy, but 85% of the time its dry. So not bad ... just not great either. My lawn is going to love it ...
Happy Mother's Day to everyone (without a mom we would not be here!)!
