Mother’s Day Weather Rains Could Hold Off Until Night
Weather models this afternoon seem to be pointing to the idea that while weather conditions will be slowly deteriorating on Sunday Mother’s Day, the rain could hold off until Sunday night. More on this shortly. First off we managed a second day of sunshine with some patchy clouds. Now we have a cold front moving southeastward from upstate New York with an east west band of clouds from New England to the Great Lakes dropping southward for this evening. The front isn’t anything to write home about but we do see the chance for some scattered showers and possible a thunderstorm moving through this evening from Northern New Jersey and the Hudson Valley to NYC Long Island & Connecticut.
The main area of rain in upstate NY is moving eastward but if you check the local radar views you begin to see some showers developing in the Catskills southwest into Northeast Pennsylvania. Those cells are moving east. We should see them moving through between 5pm to 10pm from west to east. On the Dover radar below there doesn’t appear to be any issues regarding showers for Southeaster Pennsylvania and the southern half of New Jersey.

We don’t see any major changes for Wednesday. The cold front will push southward to Northern Virginia to the Delmarva Peninsula. The cloud line should push southward into Central and Southern New Jersey so north and east of there into Northern New Jersey, the Hudson Valley, Southern New England and Long Island should be partly sunny on Wednesday with an ocean wind and highs in the 60s, 50s along the shore. Thursday looks cloudy and raw with an ocean wind and patchy light rain. Highs will be in the 50s to near 60.
No important changes are in the forecast for Friday. The warm front struggles through. The cold front follows. The chance for showers and a possible thunderstorm is in the forecast but it appears that much of the time it will be dry. Highs will reach the 70s away from the ocean. That front moves through and we should see some sunshine for Saturday with highs in the 60s.
The next weather system sets up for Sunday. Friday’s front stalls across the Gulf States with a wave developing on it. A strong shortwave trough drops into the Great Lakes and drags the low up the coast. We will see clouds increasing and thickening up on Sunday with rain developing late in the day in. That rain continues into Monday as low pressure goes by to our south. Highs could reach the 60s briefly on Sunday before we get into that raw ocean flow for Sunday night and Monday with temperatures in the 50s. Next week looks like more of the same with weather systems coming through every couple of days and not much in the way of warm weather.
