Some gusts may reach 55 mph by late Saturday afternoon and continue into the evening as temperatures drop into the 30’s overnight. Precipitation could fall in the form of either rain, or likely, snow showers.On Mother’s Day, it will feel less like the early summer weather we’ve enjoyed lately, and more like a blustery day in late March.
