Rain has been the dominant weather of the day, granted it did not really kick in until later morning. Hope all of the mothers are enjoying the day and thank you for all you do!
Current radar and satellite depict the abundant shower activity and cloud cover over the southern end of the peninsula. Some of this activity could produce lightning, gusty winds to 45mph, and funnel clouds are possible. Some of the heavier showers could cause localized, minor flooding.
And just a short while ago the National Hurricane Center (NHC) issued a Special Tropical Weather Outlook regarding this system. Regardless of development our main concern will be some heavier showers for the next couple days.
