A cold front brings rain and much colder weather….Grab your rain gear! We are tracking a good chance of rain and possibly a thunderstorm or two today as a cold front moves in from the west. The rain could be heavy at times, especially by this afternoon and evening. Minor flooding is also possible, so keep that in mind. Otherwise, expect mostly cloudy skies. High temperatures will warm into the upper 60s and lower 70s. Tonight, rain will be likely with overnight low temperatures in the mid 50s. On Friday, rain will continue to linger across the area as the front settles offshore. Skies will slowly clear by Friday evening. High temperatures will cool into the mid and upper 50s. By Saturday, highs will only reach the mid and upper 40s as high pressure moves in. That means we’ll see plenty of sun, even into Sunday. Highs on Sunday will reach the lower 50s.
