Starting off the weekend in good shape. For this morning, sunny and coolish but warming up to 16c by mid afternoon with just a few clouds. Additional cloudiness will move in during the late evening and overnight with comfortable temperatures. Weekend looking good for Mom and Mother’s Day! There is a risk of just a few showers Sunday afternoon.
