Chief Meteorologist Patrick Rockey’s First Warning Forecast

After a soggy end to the work week, Mother’s Day weekend is looking dry and milder.

We may wake up to a little patchy fog on Saturday morning, but we should enjoy plenty of sunshine through the day. A little piece of energy spinning by to our north brings just a slight chance for a few showers, mainly on the Northern Neck, Middle Peninsula and the Eastern Shore.

Expect high temperatures in the upper 60s and lower 70s.

Mother’s Day Sunday begins with plenty of cloud cover. But we should see increasing amounts of sunshine in the afternoon with high temperatures climbing to around 76°.

We will kick off the work week warmer and wetter. An area of low pressure moving in from the Gulf of Mexico will drag in some warmer temperatures, at least briefly.

But a trailing cold front will spark showers and thunderstorms by Monday afternoon and evening and bring us sharply cooler weather by Tuesday.

Expect high temperatures on Tuesday and Wednesday back into the mid 60s.

Another area of low pressure brings a chance for more wet weather Thursday and Friday of next week.
