After some excellent autumn weather again unfolds around the region Friday, big weather changes take place this weekend.
Tropical Storm Nate, now in the western Caribbean Sea, will send tropical moisture into the Southeastern U.S. This moisture will interact with an approaching frontal system and provide us with increasing opportunities for rain as the weekend rolls along.
Saturday will feature some scattered showers, mainly during the afternoon. But the majority of the rain will occur Sunday into Monday.
Exact rain amounts remain questionable, but in general, many in the region could receive 1-2 inches when all is said and done. The mountains could easily exceed 3 inches when all is totaled.
Considering most of us haven't had measurable rain since the second week of September, this is welcome news.
