Forecasters issued a hazardous weather outlook Saturday morning as a cold front moves into the region, possibly bringing rain and high winds that are likely to clear out on Sunday.

The western part of Long Island would be affected most as the front approaches.

"As these storms move east, they do lose their strength," said David Stark, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Upton. "It's not widespread, but it is really hard to pinpoint where it will exactly hit."

The front is moving east from the western New York and Pennsylvania area, Stark said.

The potential for winds above 58 miles per hour prompted the weather notice, which did not include any warnings or advisories, Stark said.

The showers and winds are expected to clear out for tomorrow, Mother's Day.

"There may be some clouds in the morning, but it will be a pretty nice day tomorrow with temperatures in the upper 60s," Stark said. "It will be mostly sunny and just a little breezy."
