Showers Give Way to Sun on Mother's Day

Mother's Day will be the pick of the weekend, despite morning showers.

Occasional showers will continue tonight with temperatures in the 40s.

The source of this long, unsightly stretch of weather is what's called an "omega" block. Essentially, the weather is wet on the edges, with sunshine in the middle.

Connecticut enjoyed the middle of an "omega" block back in April, but recently it's been the eastern edge of a block bringing the clouds and the rain.

Tomorrow will be mostly cloudy, with isolated showers. A few breaks of sun are possible late. Highs will be near 60.

Mother's Day starts with a few morning showers, then clearing is expected. The afternoon hours will be best, with a little breeze. Highs will be in the lower 60s.

Early next week, finally, sunshine returns. Monday looks like a great day with highs soaring into the upper 60s.

70 is possible come Tuesday. It looks like Wednesday will also be a weather-winner, with highs in the lower 70s and lots of sunshine.

By Thursday, middle 70s are in the cards under a mix of sunshine and clouds!

The chance for rain returns by Friday.
