NEW YORK — The weekend forecast looks to be a bit of a mixed bag as we head into Mother’s Day. A disturbance will bring some light showers and chilly temperatures on Saturday. Sunday will start out nicely with sunny skies, but clouds will roll in with a chance of showers late in the day. We’re hoping that the showers will hold off until Sunday night.
Some clouds have already moved in on Friday night and they will thicken into the evening. We should remain dry through the night as high pressure lingers around. A few showers could arrive for areas well west of the city. Temperatures will be in the upper 40s.
On Saturday, showers and drizzle will develop in the morning and it will be on and off throughout the day. Most of it will be on the light side with rainfall totals of less than a tenth of an inch for most areas. There will be a chilly breeze coming in from the northeast keeping temperatures in the 50s all day long. Any shower activity should taper off Saturday evening and skies will clear out into the overnight hours.
Mother’s Day looks to start out nice with sunny skies and temperatures climbing back toward 60 degrees. During the afternoon, a warm front will approach bringing in clouds. The chance of showers will also be on the increase, but hopefully, it will hold off for the city until the evening hours.
An area of low pressure will ride along the frontal boundary bringing steadier rain late Sunday night and continue into at least Monday morning. The rain may taper off in the afternoon allowing some clearing late in the day. Highs will be in the mid 60s
