A warm week with highs in the 70s and 80s. Tracking several chances for showers and storms. Looking like a soggy and cooler Mother’s Day weekend.

A few showers are possible this afternoon, but the biggest chance will be tonight (after 7 PM). Strong to severe storms are possible with gusty winds, heavy downpours, and hail possible.

Rain chances will be lower for Thursday, but clouds will linger. It will be much cooler with highs in the upper 60s to near 70.
Rain returns for Friday and the weekend as an area of low pressure slowly moves over the Mid-Atlantic. Highs will be cooler, in the 60s and 70s. Winds will kick up as the area of low pressure moves through.
