Sunny, warm weather through the end of the week

Mother's Day Weekend is upon us, youth sports are in full swing and college graduations are happening - nothing like some warm Kansas sunshine to celebrate!

The National Weather Service posted a "preliminary" rainfall map Friday afternoon, which has nearly all of eastern MA looking at 2-plus inches. The Red Sox will have no issues playing Friday night, but the rain might not hold off for the whole game Saturday.

A rainstorm will soak outdoor activities and threaten some communities with flooding in the northeast United States over the weekend. We're still going to see areas of "minor" flooding along tidal waterways, at the times of high tide.

Saturday will begin cloudy with a few showers possible. Overnight lows this weekend will range from the upper 50s to the low 60s.

Both today and tomorrow will feature a blend of sunshine and clouds. More recent weather models are pushing up rain totals offshore, so the lower amounts could be seen inland.

Mother's Day will be sunny with highs in the 70s in the mountains and low 80s in the Upstate.

Expect a high near 60 and clouds today, according to the National Weather Service. Mother's Day will be breezy too with wind gusts to 30 or 35 miles per hour.

While the rain might let up for Sunday's brunch hours, that would be the only reprive. Lows in the 40s down low and 30s and 40s up high.

Tuesday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 75. A look ahead to next week shows a significant warm up with highs in the 80s for Wednesday and Thursday.

Monday night: A 20 percent chance of showers, low around 54.
