Passing showers will be possible throughout the day but this afternoon the bulk of the activity is forecast to move inland and to the west coast.

The rain chance will be higher Friday into Saturday as deep tropical moisture moves in from the Gulf of Mexico. A trough of low pressure off the southeast coast and a frontal boundary will help to pump in that moisture. In addition, the steering flow will be shifting more out of the west and will help to focus the storms over the east coast metro areas.
