Now that the messy spots are out the way, how about the sunny spots…Temperatures will be rising in the Southwest with no shortage of sunshine, especially next week. Highs will be well into the 90s in Los Angeles but it will also windy and dry, which creates wildfire concerns. Although the weekend is off to a soggy start, Portland and Seattle will enjoy the clearing skies just in time for Mother’s Day.   The situation will be similar in the Northeast.  Rain is in forecast for Boston on Saturday but sunshine returns for Sunday.
