Tracking rain, then a gradual drop in our temperatures….As we move through our Friday night, have your umbrella handy. We’re tracking a good chance of rain, courtesy of an area of low pressure moving up the coast from the south. This low will spread heavy rain in some spots, capable of producing flooding in typical flood prone areas.  A couple of thunderstorms are possible as well, which could produce gusty winds.  Otherwise, expect cloudy skies with low temperatures in the upper 40s.  Most of the rain will be out of here overnight tonight into early Saturday morning. In fact, for most of Saturday, we’ll see partly cloudy skies. Highs will be in the upper 50s to near 60. A cold front moves in Saturday, causing our highs to drop into the upper 40s by Sunday. Now, talking about Sunday, expect mostly cloudy skies and a few showers. We’ll start to see a bit more sun Monday and Tuesday, but it won’t be warm at all. High temperatures will only rise into the mid 30s! Enjoy your weekend!

Friday Night: Cloudy Skies. Rain Likely (100%). Isolated thunderstorms possible. Low temperatures in the upper 40s. Winds: W/NW 10-15.

Saturday: Clouds and Sun.  Mild.  High temperatures in the upper 50s. Winds: W 5-10 mph.

Sunday: Mostly Cloudy. Chance of Showers (25-30%). High temperatures in the upper 40s. Winds: N 5-10 mph.
