Every forecast shows rain all through Memorial Day. However, we are usually skeptical about rain when the storms arrive from the west against stronger winds out of the east.
Winds are only 5 to 10 mph this weekend for both Friday and Saturday. Unfortunately, that may not be enough wind speed to keep the rain out of Sebastian.
On Sunday, there is also a wind change out of the southwest, which will only drive the rain into our area. Wind gusts will be as high as 20 mph.
On Memorial Day, the winds will change back out of the east, but not enough to keep us dry in Sebastian. Winds only at 5 to 10 mph with no higher gusts.
How much rain? While there is no escape in sight from keeping the clouds away, there’s a 50 percent chance of rain all through the weekend and into Memorial Day.
With a 50 percent chance of rain in the forecast, that’s also like flipping a coin. There’s a greater chance for scattered showers than no rain at all.
Take an umbrella if you plan to attend the Memorial Day Ceremony at the Veterans Memorial in Riverview Park.
The highs on Friday will beach 90 degrees, with an overnight low of 71. During the weekend, including Memorial Day, the highs will be 86 degrees, with an overnight low of 71.
Rain or shine, there are a lot of events in Sebastian this weekend. We hope to see you at some of the events, and Sebastian Daily will be at the Memorial Day Ceremony.
Have a great weekend Sebastian!
