It seems that it’s rained every weekend this year in portions of the east coast, and this Mother’s Day won’t be different for many. Another area of low pressure will bring soaking rains to the east on Sunday, with some of the heaviest rains expected around New York City, New Jersey, Philadelphia, mch of Pennsylvania, Delaware, eastern Maryland, and portions of West Virginia and Virginia. Here, up to 3″ or more of rain is possible.
A frontal boundary will remain stalled out over portions of the Mid Atlantic and southeast into early next week. Several waves of low pressure are forecast to move along this boundary through the period, leading to multiple periods of rain. This boundary will finally lift northward as an area of low pressure from the south, combines with an area of low pressure moving in from the Great Lakes, then lifts toward New England Monday night into Tuesday. The result is a soaking rain storm over several days, with heavy rain showers likely for many on Mothers’ Day.
High pressure should return to the east late Tuesday into Wednesday, providing some dry air back into the area. Unfortunately for those looking for a prolonged dry spell, it appears more rain will be returning to the area soon after.
