Cloudy skies, rain throughout the weekend in the Wyoming Valley

Cloudy skies, rain throughout the weekend in the Wyoming Valley

We'll keep the chance through the afternoon, but it will NOT be a washout. (You can call it a "nor'easter" if you really want.) Plenty of moisture to make for washout conditions across the entire state.

Scattered rain and a few storms will be likely through Friday evening. Clouds will thicken up again Friday afternoon, limiting our daytime warming quite a bit. The rain looks like it will stick around for most of Mother's Day, but it should be somewhat warmer with a high in the lower 60s. "Most rainfall totals around the area will be around 0.50-1.50" with locally higher amounts expected, especially south and east. Temperatures today will stay in the low 50s with a breeze. Get ready for several days of rain on the way.

While the weekend starts off dry, a coastal storm will play a major role in our weather by Saturday night into Mother's Day.

Showers will linger into Saturday morning - with a clearing trend for the afternoon from the northwest. The map below shows very little rainfall before this time in Boston.

Tuesday: A 20 percent chance of showers, partly sunny, high near 75. Current models project between 1 to 1.5 inches of rain on Saturday for southwest CT - not the 3 inches that was forecast on Thursday. Winds could gust as high as 15 miles per hour. But timing, the storm's track, and wind's trajectory are really playing in our favor here. The greater threat of coastal flooding will be north of Atlantic City.

Dillier wins stage 6 of the Giro, Canada's Woods fifth
Dillier kicked first inside the last 200 metres and managed to hold off Stuyven to take his maiden grand tour stage win. Luxembourg's Bob Jungels of Quick-Step retained the overall lead, with Team Sky's Geraint Thomas 6sec behind.

A storm forecast for May 13, 2017.

The real action happens on Saturday when the new system is expected to reach the Mid-Atlantic coast and spawn a springtime nor'easter. Sunday won't be a day to take Mom out for a round of golf.

Today will be mild, despite the clouds.

Wednesday: Sunny, warm. High: Near 80. Normal for mid-May is around 70 degrees.

Two weather issues remain for Sunday, however. Low around 47. Breezy, with an east wind 13 to 18 miles per hour increasing to 19 to 24 miles per hour after midnight.
