Scattered showers are expected on Saturday, mainly south of the Turnpike, according to meteorologist Maryellen Pann of News Eight Storm Team.
However, Mother’s Day is predicted to be dry and pleasant, with increasing sunshine and a few passing clouds.
Next week, temperatures will be near average, and there is little chance of rain.
The current weather pattern is relatively quiet, with some light showers in the area.
The roads are wet, and temperatures are around 68 degrees Fahrenheit with light winds.
The light shower activity is expected to continue throughout the day as a frontal boundary moves through the region.
By evening, the showers will end, and it will be mostly cloudy.
Highs will reach the low to mid-70s, depending on when the wet weather clears.
Tonight will be partly cloudy, starting off with temperatures around 60 degrees and dropping to the low to mid-50s.
Tomorrow, on Mother’s Day, it will be partly sunny and breezy, with winds from the north at 10 to 15 mph and temperatures in the low 70s.
The morning and early afternoon will have the greatest chance of rain, which will taper off later in the day.
Yesterday’s high was 85 degrees, well above the average of 73, while the low was close to the average at 54 degrees.
Today’s temperatures are not as warm as yesterday afternoon but are warm in the morning.
Various locations report temperatures in the mid to upper 60s.
The frontal boundary will continue moving south, resulting in the shower activity also shifting southwards.
The best chance of showers will be south of the Turnpike and closer to the Maryland and Pennsylvania state line.
The predictor hour-by-hour forecast shows the wet weather sinking south, clearing overnight, and starting Sunday with sunshine and a few clouds.
The afternoon will see more sunshine, making for a great second half of the weekend.
Monday will have mostly sunny skies, thanks to high pressure, and will mark a nice start to the workweek.
There is a small chance of a shower or two Tuesday night into Wednesday as a weather system moves southward, but the daytime hours will be dry.
Overall, the forecast shows a quiet pattern with no 80-degree temperatures in the extended forecast.
Highs will range from the mid-70s to the upper 60s with some breezy conditions.
Wednesday and Thursday are expected to have full sunshine.
