Mother’s Day brings a mix of clouds, sun and spotty showers to DC area

At the end of a rainy weekend, the sun is expected to come out for Mother’s Day in the D.C. area. But don’t count out a few light showers.

Expect a mix of clouds with patches of sun on Sunday with a slight chance of “spotty showers” north and east of the beltway. Those showers are expected to clear out by evening.

“Mostly cloudy conditions to be expected in the afternoon,” said 7News First Alert Meteorologist Jordan Evans.

For the afternoon, it’s expected to warm up with temperatures close to 70 degrees and a NW wind between 10 to 20 mph.

“Most of the storms are headed towards the Chesapeake Bay,” Evans said.

It’s expected to get a little cooler Sunday evening with clear skies and lows around 50 degrees.

Monday is expected to be mostly sunny and dry with low humidity and temperatures around 77 degrees.
