Fortunately, though, we won't be in the nozzle the whole time.

Friday will be the nicest of the next three days. We wake to a mild morning, with temperatures 55-60 degrees and a mostly sunny sky. Drier air continues filtering into the state on a northwesterly breeze, so dew point values will go from the 30s into the 20s! Lows will fall into the mid 60s. Sunday clouds increase with a chance of showers and storms developing late night and through the start of the week. A front will stall just to the south of CT and a weak wave of low pressure will develop on the front.

Temperatures get just a little bit warmer for the weekend. The mountains could see a few brief showers Saturday afternoon.

The weekend brings more heat!

Saturday will then be the transition day.

Last year, Mother's Day came with a low of 46 degrees and high of 83.

Friday will be slightly warmer than Thursday under sunny skies. Highs will reach the lower 90s. A summery high pressure system will elevate temperatures and humidity levels while keeping rain chances low throughout the weekend.

Mother Nature doesn't deserve a Mother's Day brunch - unless you really think South Florida needs a soaking.

"It's definitely going to feel more like summer than spring", said Valerie Meola, meteorologist with the National Weather Service. There will be a sharp change in temperatures.
