A storm like this gives us the beautiful phenomenon of sideways rain — when it doesn't matter if you're wearing your raincoat, rain boots and have an umbrella because you're going to get drenched.

Strong winds combined with heavy rains are coming together to create a weekend you might want to spend inside.

Sudden rain like this can lead to flash flooding, especially in low-lying areas so take care as you head out.
