Perseid meteor shower peaks Friday-Sunday

If you were making plans to watch this weekend’s peak of the Perseid meteor shower, think again.

The National Weather Service is calling for rain and thunderstorms beginning this afternoon and continuing through at least next Wednesday, effectively blocking out Mother Nature’s fireworks.

The Perseids peaked Friday , but there still will be 40-to-50 meteors per hour tonight, experts said. Unfortunately, with three-fourths of a moon lighting up the sky behind rain clouds, this will be a disappointing year for the astronomical event.
Today could be the worst day for rain and storms, with projections for at least an inch of precipitation and some localized flooding at high tide, which is about 1:30 p.m. in Norfolk.

The only instructions you need for the shower are to go outside and look up. There will be some clouds at the coast but inland viewing looks good.
