    Mothers Day Weekend Weather

    May 9, 2013; 9:39 AM ET

    Thursday 10:50 a.m.

    The slow-moving storm that finally brought some rain to the Northeast is still causing showers from Maryland to Maine. New York City was hard-hit by a batch of heavy rain late this morning, but at most places the rainfall totals were far less than in yesterday's deluge.

    As the storm departs tomorrow, it will turn warmer, with afternoon temperatures taking a run at 70 in Boston and 80 degrees in Philadelphia. The warmup will be reversed as we go into the weekend. A cold front that will cause showers and thunderstorms around Chicago later this afternoon and tonight will reach the I95 corridor by Saturday morning. A second cold front will cross the Northeast on Mothers Day. That front will have far less rain than the first front, and it will actually usher cooler and much drier into the Northeast late in the weekend. This video has more.

    Last evening, there were showers around much of central Pennsylvania. In this picture, Sam the Dog surveys the back deck as it continues to dry out from previous showers. Sam is a 13-year-old American Eskimo Dog, and I believe he still enjoys growing additional fur.
