Cloudy, rainy and cool weather will be around Thursday and Friday in the New York City area, but temperatures will make a rebound for Mother's Day weekend.

A wind flow from the Atlantic Ocean will emerge across the area on Thursday and persist into Friday; it will bring clouds, chilly air and some rain at times.

At the same time, temperatures will surge into the 80s in parts of Pennsylvania, Virginia and Maryland.

Warm air building farther south and west over the mid-Atlantic later this week will try to nose into New York City this weekend but in a watered-down fashion.

That warmer weather will be accompanied by showers and thunderstorms. The wettest day this weekend will be Saturday which could bring travel delays and perhaps flash and urban flooding problems.

The rain could interrupt baseball between the Mets and Phillies series Friday and Saturday.

Drier air will filter into the area on Sunday, just in time for Mother's Day. The dry weather will be accompanied by warmth as highs approach 80 F.
