Thursday will be dry, but rain will move back into the area by Friday morning in what will be the beginning of a prolonged period of wet and blustery weather through Mother’s Day weekend.

Expect occasional rain from Friday afternoon through Friday night and all day Saturday.

Low pressure off the coast will keep a stiff northeast wind in place making it feel raw and chilly, especially on Saturday, when temperatures likely won’t get out of the 50s.

Depending on how quickly the low pressure moves out, conditions will either improve by Mother’s Day, or it will remain mostly cloudy, breezy with lingering showers through the day Sunday.
