The Red Sox will have no issues playing Friday night, but the rain might not hold off for the whole game Saturday.
Sunday: Heaviest rain ends early in the morning.
A nor'easter will arrive in the Philadelphia region overnight Saturday bringing heavy rainfall and gusty winds throughout the day and impacting commencement ceremonies scheduled at a number of area colleges, includig West Chester University and Chestnut Hill College. 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.
Computer models shows a washout on Saturday. Northern zones with a small rain chance and southern zones with a 100% rain chance. High near 55. Between a half and three quarters of an inch is possible. Such downpours are enough to cause "the usual heavy rain problems", including poor visibility, ponding on roadways, and flooding of low-lying areas. Combined with cool temperatures (mid 50s) and a brisk wind (gusts to 30 mph), I'm going to call it yucky. Light rain/drizzle in the morning, scattered showers in the afternoon.
We'll see a mix of sun and clouds today as a high pressure begins to move out of the area and highs are seasonable in the low 70s. Of interest are two other storms on the satellite, one off the Pacific Northwest coast and the other east of Nova Scotia.
North Korea claims plot reveals US state-sponsored terrorism
Washington said it was "aware of reports that a U.S. citizen was detained in North Korea" and would liaise with Pyongyang. PUST is North Korea's only privately funded university and has a large number of foreign teachers, including Americans.
It's more than three times the rainfall that normally falls between May 1 to 11, according to weather service data. Clouds will break apart, leading to shots of sunshine throughout the day. Temperatures are expected to climb into the lower 80s Tuesday with continued sunshine on Wednesday and Thursday.
And, for 10 consecutive days, temperatures at Buffalo have run below normal. Winds: W 10-15 miles per hour, gusts to 25 miles per hour. So the day might feel a bit blustery at times. That possibility will crop up sometime Sunday evening.
Should enough chilly air be manufactured by the storm, it is not out of the question for wet snowflakes to mix with the rain over the higher elevations of NY and New England during the second half of the weekend.
Cool and rainy weather continues today and this weekend in Lancaster County.
