Remnants of Andrea Racing Up The Coast

It's a half-n-half day today. Most of the showers in the east, and the best shot at sun in the west.

Welcome to Friday!

...The first Friday where everyone is finally done with school (now that Putnam County has fully graduated after Winfield's graduation ceremonies were delayed last night with the pile-up on the bridge-- eesh). We'd love to bring on the sunshine, but we're still dealing with Andrea. She is moving quickly up the coast though. Here's the latest forecast:

She may get a little weaker, but at this point it's all about the rain-field. Folks on the other side of the mountains will be soaked with inches of rain and terrible traveling conditions (I-81, I-95 for example). Around here it's a little better, but also depending on where you're at...

Some folks in the west and north may not get rained on at all today, while those nearer to and east of the Charleston metro will have once again be on-guard for the downpours that can quickly slicken the streets.

Andrea's remnants are expected to exit soon into the night such that by Saturday we'll be into some new air of a less tropical nature. Expect more sunshine on Saturday and Sunday both, but there's still a slight threat of a shower sneaking around. Here's the NAM  for example:

NAM - Saturday Afternoon NAM - Sunday Afternoon

I would not worry about these showers, just file it back as a slight risk for a very small portion of the day. There will be more opportunities for outdoor fun and sun than there will be to duck under an umbrella. It's a good thing too... so many things going on this weekend! Find something to enjoy outside, for showers once again lurk on the horizon for the week ahead.
