Chief Meteorologist Patrick Rockey's First Warning Forecast

Call it the "50 Shades of May."
After a gloomy Mother’s Day because of a coastal storm, it was nice to see the sunshine return for Monday. But that coastal storm will be hitting the brakes and moving back in our direction.

That will mean days of clouds and gusty winds and tidal flooding. As a matter of fact, we will wake up to overcast skies and gusty winds on Tuesday morning. And many roads will be covered in flood water for the Tuesday morning and the Tuesday afternoon commute.

Expect high temperatures to drop a few degrees on Tuesday, topping out only in the upper 50s for most of us. Gloom continues on Wednesday but we will warm up just a bit. Expect temperatures back in the low to mid 60s.

It looks like we will add more rain to the mix on Thursday. Expect scattered showers from time to time both Thursday and Friday. But we will be heading higher with temperatures near normal in the mid 70s on Friday.

After the mess on Mother’s Day we deserve a nice weekend and it does look like we’re going to get it. Expect partly cloudy skies both days with high temperatures in the 70s on Saturday and warming into the 80s on Sunday.
