Forecast Last Updated at Saturday, May 8, 2021 at 7:11AM

Cool Saturday; Warmer Sunday

The dominant theme for this forecast period is unseasonably cool temperatures. However, there are a couple of days where temperatures will be closer to normal, and just for Mom, Mother's Day is one of them. A stray light shower is possible early this morning with more sun for the afternoon. Temperatures are cool and add a gusty northwest wind to the mix, you'll be wondering if it's March or May. Mom deservedly gets a 5 Golfball weather day on Sunday with mainly sunny skies and seasonal temperatures. Clouds return Sunday night with showers likely on Monday. Temps are mild starting off the week on Monday, then cool for the remainder of the week.

Forecast Discussion

Chilly weather continues as we begin Mother's Day weekend with an isolated early morning shower. More sun by the afternoon will help some with the temperatures, but with a gusty NW wind, it will feel more like March instead of May.

Mother's Day has a cool start but a wonderful warmup by afternoon thanks to a warmer south wind that develops. It remains a bit breezy, but overall, Mom will like it.

The next cold front from the northwest moves through on Monday. Clouds increase Sunday night and showers develop late and continue into Monday. A thundershower is also possible. Showers come to an end early Monday night. Cool high pressure moves across the East Tuesday and into the Atlantic Wednesday. Skies will be mostly to partly sunny Tuesday and Wednesday with cooler than average temperatures.

A return flow of moisture comes late Wednesday and Thursday as low pressure moves from Louisiana to the Carolina Coast. There is a little uncertainty on how far north the moisture makes it on Thursday thus our rain chances are in question at this point in time. We'll continue to keep the mention for possible rain on Thursday for now and fine tune this as details become a little clearer over the next couple of days.
