Tracking rain, storms and warmer temperatures….As we move through our Saturday, the whole day will not be a washout. Some of us will have to dodge areas of drizzle through the morning. Otherwise, expect areas of fog to give way to mostly cloudy skies. Highs will be in the upper 50s and lower 60s. Tonight, rain chances will be going up with an approaching weather system. Rain will become scattered overnight. A couple of thunderstorms are possible, too, which could be strong to severe, with heavy rain and damaging wind gusts as the primary threats. We cannot rule out an isolated tornado. We’ll keep an eye on it closely in the Live VIPIR Forecast Center. Rain will likely continue into early Sunday morning before we see our skies gradually clear. Highs on Sunday will warm into the mid and upper 60s. By Monday, temperatures will cool into the 40s for highs!

Today: AM Fog. Mostly Cloudy. Isolated Showers/Areas of Drizzle (20%). High temperatures in the upper 50s and lower 60s. Winds: E 5-10 mph.

Tonight: Mostly Cloudy. Rain Likely (80%). Thunderstorms are possible. Low temperatures in the middle 50s. Winds: NE 5-10 mph.

Tomorrow: Chance of AM Showers (40%). Then, gradual clearing. High temperatures in the mid and upper 60s. Winds: SW 10-20 mph.
