    NBC10 First Alert Weather Mostly Dry Saturday

    Saturday will be mostly dry, though there will be a small chance of scattered showers as the day goes on. Temperatures will be in the high 60s to low 70s, and conditions will also be mostly clear, but clouds will start forming as a Mother’s Day shower approaches Sunday.

    What to Know

    • We have a mixed bag of springlike weather this weekend with storms possible Friday, mostly clear conditions Saturday and rain Sunday.

    • Plan to spend time outdoors Saturday with rain likely for Mother's Day.

    • Rain is expected to linger into Monday.

    For the second, consecutive weekend we are going to have a mixed bag of weather.

    Saturday appears to be dry, quiet and pleasant while Sunday, Mother’s Day, appears to be mostly a chilly washout, just like the Sunday before.

    Here is the latest on the springlike weekend weather:

    Saturday (The Best Day of the Bunch)

    With street festivals, Love Your Park clean-ups in Philadelphia, the Jefferson Dad Vail Regatta and numerous other outdoor events on tap, this is the winner of the weekend.

    “If you must do something outdoors, Saturday is your day,” First Alert Weather meteorologist Bill Henley said.

    A rain shower is possible in the evening

    Sunday (Bring Your Umbrella to Mother’s Day Brunch)

    This is not a good day for outdoor Mother’s Day plans. The heaviest rain falls during the morning with a patchy light to steady rain in the afternoon. More heavier rain is possible Sunday evening and night. The highs will be in the 50s and not rise during the afternoon. 

    More rain is then expected Sunday night and lasting into Monday. The high Monday is expected to be near 60.

    One to 2 inches of rain total could fall.
