A surge of cool air riding a powerful jet stream from Canada is setting the stage for a cooler than normal Mother’s Day weekend. But we could see a 90-degree day later in the week.

Temperatures are predicted to drop slowly to the mid or upper 50s by nightfall Saturday evening and stay in the 50s on Sunday. The 72-degree high last Mother’s Day is to be but a distance memory.

A late season frost threat looms Sunday night with temperatures settling into the 30s overnight.

But a dramatic rebound is expected next week.  Southwest winds will drive temperatures into the low 70s Monday after a morning of 30s. They are likely to climb well into the 80s Tuesday and Wednesday, and a 90-degree reading isn’t out of the realm of possibility on either day.

Powerful thunderstorms could sweep the area late Wednesday or Wednesday night with the approach of a new cold front.
