Tracking a few showers for the weekend….The weekend will not be a washout, but a few showers are possible as a fast-moving system moves our way. Now, most of this Saturday will be dry under partly sunny skies. But the clouds will thicken in advance of an area of low pressure from the northwest. This clipper system will move over the area this evening, giving way to a few scattered showers late tonight through Sunday morning. Again, we’re expecting mainly rain from this event, but we’ll keep a close eye on it.  By Sunday afternoon, our skies will gradually clear. High temperatures today and Sunday will be in the upper 40s and lower 50s.

Next week, we’ll see a nice warm up. Highs will rise into the 60s and possibly the 70s by the middle of the work week. We’re expecting plenty of sunshine, too. However, a few showers are possible next Friday.

Today: Partly Sunny. Isolated PM Showers (20%). High temperatures in the upper 40s and lower 50s. Winds: NE-SE 5-10 mph.

Tonight: Mostly Cloudy. Chance of Showers (30%). Low temperatures in the mid 30s. Winds: SE 5-10 mph.

Tomorrow: Partly Sunny. Scattered Showers (50%). High temperatures in the upper 40s and lower 50s. Winds: N 5-15 mph.
