A stormy weekend is in store for much of the eastern US as an unsettled weather pattern persists across the region while waves of low pressure fuel widespread showers and storms, some of which may pose the risk for flash flooding.

This morning, there will be several batches of showers that will affect parts of the Northeast — especially the interior — as well as into the central Appalachian Mountains and various Gulf Coast states. Then as the daytime heating and instability increases by the afternoon, that will allow for additional shower and thunderstorm development. By this point in time, much of the East will be experiencing some kind of wet weather. The only exception will be the Carolina coast while high pressure keeps much of the Midwest dry on Saturday.

Sunday will be a quieter day in terms of activity compared to Saturday but it will still be a stormy day for some. While most of the Northeast enjoys a nice and dry Sunday, it will be the Southeast where the typical hit or miss showers and storms will be around. Much of Florida and coastal Georgia and South Carolina can expect a dry day.

Through Sunday night, most locations can expect less than 1 inch of rainfall but there will be some pockets of 1 to 1.5 inches across parts of Northeast and Gulf Coast states.
