It'll be wet but not a total washout every day.

Sunday-Mother's Day

The front that has kept rain chances around all weekend will finally move through Sunday, so if you miss the rainfall Friday and Saturday, it's likely you get wet Sunday as a large area of showers and storms moves through. 

Rain showers may start as early as 6 a.m. lasting until around 9 p.m. 

This line of storms may also produce severe weather with damaging wind gusts, 1" hail, and a brief tornado.
