The storm system that’s brought our daily barrage is beginning to break down and move away, so the area will have more traditional summer afternoon storms this weekend, some of which will be heavy, Terry said.

Seabreeze storms will dominate the weekend, Terry said, forming after 2 p.m. Saturday afternoon and heading toward the east coast by late afternoon.On Sunday, both seabreezes will bring scattered afternoon storms through the area. Terry said rain coverage each day is expected to be at 60%.
