6:30 AM Friday May 5 – Your commute this morning may seem longer than Manny Machado rounding the bases at Fenway after a home run. Moderate to heavy rain may include some rumbles of thunder are already here. The heaviest will be between 10 AM and noon. Then there will be a break, perhaps with some peaks of sun. But we will not be done. Cinco de Mayo may feature some boomers later on too. A few thunderstorms will fire this afternoon and the trick is the watch the radar for it to move south to north.  Note: There is a Tornado Watch for the beaches in Virginia to North Carolina. I expect the most severe weather will stay to our south today.

This weekend will mark the dramatic drop in temperatures and it may feel like Fall. As for the change of showers Saturday, see more along with the frost info below.
