Weekend storms will likely impact graduation ceremonies, Mother's Day plans

RALEIGH (WTVD) -- Do you have a graduation outside this weekend? You may stay dry depending on the timing. Let's break down the weekend into four parts: Saturday a.m., Saturday p.m., Sunday a.m., Sunday p.m.

The same system that brought Saturday moisture could hang up and stay over us Saturday night into Sunday morning.

At this point showers could linger through the morning hours, so UNC and Duke, both having services at 9 a.m., could be wet. It looks like those showers do stop late morning, and then return--likely with some extra hot sauce on them--Sunday afternoon.

We are actually in a risk for severe weather Sunday with the biggest threat from damaging winds or hail.

I want to say this forecast is NOT set in stone. The further out you go in a forecast, the less chance it has of being right and timing of showers and storms is one of the hardest parts of weather to nail down. If you follow my old scoutmaster's advice, you'll be OK: Be prepared!
