Dry but cool Mother’s Day

Clouds continue to decrease this evening on the back side of this cold front.  This boundary brought in a line of isolated showers on Saturday afternoon with locally heavy showers.  But behind this boundary will be colder and drier air for the end of the weekend.  First, here’s a look at where temperatures topped out on Saturday afternoon:

As for temperatures overnight, with the cold front passage, we’ll definitely see a bigger drop in overnight temperatures.  The metro should fall to 38°F, while the outlying areas will see lows ranging from 34-37°F.  Patchy frost has definitely been discussed leading up to tonight’s big drop.  At this point, I can only see a few isolated reports of patchy frost.  This is not going to be an area wide event with frost, especially not here in the metro.

Mother’s Day will start off sunny but chilly.  Temperatures increase to the mid to upper 50s on Sunday afternoon.  But also expect a few more clouds to return on the back side of our departing low pressure system.  These clouds would mainly be around Sunday afternoon.  Our southern spots will miss out on the clouds, but if you are north of I-74, do expect to see skies turning partly cloudy for the afternoon hours.  Winds also remain from the northwest at 10-15 mph.

After Sunday, temperatures make a quick climb as we enter the workweek.  A low pressure system coming out of the Great Plains will help move in much warmer air, especially by Tuesday.
