Stormy, wet weekend in store to welcome May
Placeholder Image

April showers will carry into May as rainy weather and possible thunderstorms are forecast throughout the weekend.

The National Weather Service forecast calls for storms throughout the night Saturday and into Sunday. A few could bring high winds but the chance of severe weather appears low.

Up to a half inch of rain is possible after 8 p.m. Saturday, with more rain and gusty winds likely through the day Sunday and until Sunday night. Temperatures will drop into the mid-60s overnight and rise back into the upper 70s on Sunday.

Most of the showers will clear out overnight Sunday but the chance of storms lingers through the early part of the week, with a 40 percent chance of precipitation Monday and Tuesday.

Rainy skies Saturday led to the move of the Rock in the Spring benefit concert for Challenged Child and Friends being moved from the Brenau University amphitheater to the indoor venue at Grove Street Station in Gainesville.
