The sunshine is on hold for a while, as low pressure keeps skies cloudy with daily chances of rain for the first part of the week.

TODAY: Mostly cloudy and unseasonably cool
Highs: 61°-66°
Wind: NE/E 6-12 mph

TONIGHT: Chilly with scattered showers
Lows: 40s
Wind: East 4-8

TOMORROW: Cloudy and breezy with periods of rain
Highs: 62°-67°
Wind: East 10-15 mph

The large area of high pressure which has been residing off the coast of New England is moving out to sea. The sunny and cool weather it provided has ended and now clouds and showers will be around for several days.

Low pressure over the Southern Appalachians and an associated low pressure center off the southeast coast will slowly move northward. This will keep skies cloudy and produce chances for rain at times through early Thursday.

At first, winds will be out of the east, keeping temperatures cooler than average, but shifting winds will bring in slightly milder air by Thursday. Clearing skies will develop during the day on Thursday with mostly sunny skies here by Friday.

The Mother's Day weekend weather may be affected by another cold front. We expect cooler temperatures with a chance of showers on Saturday and even an isolated shower or two on Sunday. It is only Monday, so perhaps things will change by the weekend.
