Cool and rainy weather is in store for Mother's Day weekend in Seattle; however, skies may clear up for the actual holiday.

After thunderstorms rolled through the region on Friday, temperatures lingered in the high 50s making for cool, damp weather in the city.

However, Meteorologist Dave Samuhel said the weekend should be drier.

"There could still be a little bit of rain left over [on Saturday], but it doesn't look like it's going to be as wet," Samuhel said. "Sunday looks even better."

Highs on Saturday will hit the 60 F mark despite rainy skies.

By Sunday, the showers will subside and there will be intervals of clouds and sunshine throughout the day. High temperatures will be in the 60s, making for enjoyable weather for Mother's Day.

Skies will remain at least partly sunny though midweek, as temperatures stay consistently in the mid-70s.

The city's next chance for showers will come next weekend.
