The persistent ridge of high pressure that has brought us unseasonably warm weather will eventually start to weaken as a weak cool front moves through South Florida on Saturday.

Ahead of the front, scattered showers and a few strong storms are possible, however it will not be a washout. Highs will continued to be hot, in the low-mid 90s.

By Mother's Day, we cool off a few degrees. Highs will drop into the upper 80s, but we'll still be running above the average of 85 degrees. We are dry on Mother's Day with ample sunshine.

Next week's forecast is very summer-like with temperatures in the 90s and shower and storm chances each day.
