Sunday's Best

By Marek Zebrowski
Staff Meteorologist

A couple of small waves of low pressure will develop and slowly move from the mid-Atlantic coast toward the Gulf of Maine, keeping moist, maritime flow, especially near the coast, for the next 48 hours. Current indications point to a timely clearing on Sunday, when a small ridge of high pressure should provide a lot of sunshine for Mother's Day. Showers are expected to return early next week, ahead of a large and potent low pressure system that will bring a great deal of inclement weather to the central portions of the country this weekend.

Today: Cloudy with fog, drizzle and a scattering of showers. Cool with highs only near 54F (12C), accompanied by damp, onshore breezes

Tonight: Cloudy with showers, especially near the coast and on the Cape. Low 48F (9C), northeasterly wind continuing.

Saturday: Cloudy with some early drizzle and fog possible near the coast; cloudy with some breaks to the west and south. High near 60F (16C).

Sunday: Sunny and pleasant with highs 70-72F (21-24C) inland, 65F (17-19C) near the coast.
