Dry through Thursday; Showers Friday; Rainy Mother’s Day

The decent stretch of weather continues with dry skies likely on Thursday ahead of a frontal system that will bring showers on Friday. That storm system clears out to start the weekend, but it will not be long before rain returns. You may want to have a back-up plan for being outdoors with Mom on Sunday – it looks rainy as a storm moves up the East Coast.

Late Workweek Showers

Sun will give way to clouds on Thursday, and it will not be as warm as the past few days with highs in the 50s coast to low-mid 60s inland. It will likely stay dry through the day. Showers arrive late Thursday night, and it looks occasionally wet during the day on Friday. It’s not a soaking storm system, with about 0.25″ rain likely. Expect the temperature to hover in the upper 50s on Friday. Showers continue into Friday night before ending by dawn on Saturday.

Showers roll through on Friday

50/50 Weekend

Saturday looks like a nice day with a west-northwest breeze and dry air arriving as the storm moves offshore. Highs will be in the mid to upper 60s with plenty of sunshine on Saturday. Clouds roll in late Saturday night, and it will not be a great Mother’s Day in Southern New England. It’s still early for a very specific forecast, but right now it looks wet from mid-morning through the night. It also looks unseasonably cool, with temperatures probably in the 40s (ouch) for a good part of the day.

The storm may move slowly enough that rain continues through the night and lingers on Monday, too. Expect it to stay quite cool on Monday with temps in the 40s again! If the storm moves right over Southern New England, expect 1-2″ of rain. If it’s a glancing blow, it will be closer to 0.5″ rain.

There is a much lower chance of rain on Tuesday as the storm slowly drifts away. It will not be warm for mid-May, with temps in the 50s likely during the day. The normal high is in the upper 60s next week.

Wednesday looks ok with dry weather and warmer temps. A storm system coming out of the Great Lakes could bring showers back on Thursday. The unsettled spring continues!
