Synopsis…

A warm front will very slowly move across the region today with plenty of clouds lingering and a slight chance of a rain shower or isolated thunderstorm this afternoon. Temperatures will not be as warm as yesterday with the cloud cover, but still well into the 60’s, while areas just west of the region on the other side of the front may be well into the 70’s and perhaps closer to 80 degrees.

Milder temperatures will then arrive on Saturday as the warm front surges well north of the region, but a weak cold front will begin to approach by early afternoon with the chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms developing. Drier weather and sunshine will return for Mother’s Day to salvage some of the weekend with unseasonably warm temperatures looking to continue into early next week.
