Weather: A cold front will come into the region on Friday with showers and thunderstorms. While an all day washout is not expected, periods of rain will be possible from dawn to dusk. At this time, the chance for severe weather is very low, but one or two storms could generate gusty wind or hail. This system may leave behind about a half inch of rain before ushering in slightly cooler and drier air for Mother’s Day weekend. Nice sunshine is expected Saturday and Sunday afternoons. Thermometers will climb above average on Monday and Tuesday as mostly sunny skies push readings into the upper 80s.
