Get ready for a wet, chilly Mother's Day weekend. If you have outdoor plans with Mom it's time to start thinking about plan B! We are anticipating 1"-2" of widespread rain but there could be higher amounts up to 3" in some heavier rain bands.

Today will start off cloudy with rain developing in the morning for areas west of the CT River. Locations east of I-91 will hang on to the drier weather a little longer with rain beginning in the early/mid afternoon. Rain will start off light then become steadier and heavier late this afternoon and evening. The heaviest rain will come down tonight into early Sunday morning (before daybreak). During this time street flooding or minor river flooding is possible.

Steady rain early Mother's Day morning will taper to scattered showers, cloudy and cool conditions. There's a chance some areas could see a little sun, but no promises!

Showers will linger into your Monday before a well-deserved warming trend gets underway next week. By the middle of next week get ready for summer as we will be into the 80s!
