Technical Discussion:
Warm air moves into the region today as a frontal system has lifted northward. Given at least partial sunshine and 850mb temperatures around +11C, inland highs should reach the mid and upper 70's. Some locations could reach as high as the lower 80's, especially in Fairfield County and portions of the CT River valley.
An approaching front brings off and on showers on Saturday. There looks to be a round of showers early in the morning and then more afternoon/evening showers. The atmosphere may become somewhat unstable, especially if enough sunshine breaks through the clouds. With dew-points in the lower 60's and some wind shear aloft, a few isolated severe thunderstorms are possible. This risk is relatively low and is confined to western parts of the state.
With a cold front moving eastward, improving conditions are likely on Sunday. The computer models do hint at just a touch of residual moisture early in the day. There could be a morning shower or sprinkle, but most of Mother's Day looks fair and dry. Expecting highs to reach well into the 60's.
Cooler air builds in for the beginning of next week. A trough swings through and brings and unseasonably cool air-mass into the Northeast. Expect highs to struggle to 60 on Monday and some patchy frost is possible Tuesday morning. Gradually moderating temperatures are forecast during the day on Tuesday and into Wednesday. 

Today: Fair skies and warm Highs in the mid-70's to near 80, except near 70 on the shore.
Tonight: Mostly cloudy, a few showers late. Lows in the mid-50's.
Saturday: Scattered showers, possible PM thunder. Highs in mid-60's to lower 70's.
Sunday: An early shower? Otherwise clearing. Highs in the mid to upper 60's.
Monday: Partly sunny, but cooler. Highs in the upper 50's to around 60.
Tuesday: Fair skies after a chilly start. Highs in the low to mid-60's.
Wednesday: Partly cloudy. Highs in the mid-60's.

Note: Inland temperatures are an average. Often times, outlying areas may be a few degrees cooler than the advertised temperature on the 6-day graphic.
