5/10 – Rob’s “WET/FLOODING” Mother’s Day Weekend Forecast
Rainfall will continue this afternoon before beginning to tapper-off late afternoon/evening. A pseudo-warm front is pretty much aligned with the I-10/12 corridor; the other low is in the NW Gulf of Mexico.
The main threat for today is strong winds and heavy rainfall which could lead to flash flooding…as flash flood watch is in effect through 7 PM.
Given the quasi-stationary frontal boundary will be lingering for the next several days, the watch will likely need to be extended in time. Beyond tonight, not much change from day-to-day into early next week as the stalled frontal zone with tropical moisture will provide the ingredients of repeat complexes of t-storms/rain and organized convective activity with varying degrees of uncertainty on placement and intensities.
High pressure is off the New England coast and over Nebraska, with low pressure along the Ontario-Quebec border and a cold front to near Cleveland-Nashville and Houston.
