Tracking slightly cooler temps….The spring-like weather we’ve seen will continue over the next few days. However, many of us won’t be in the 80s for a while. We’re tracking a weak cold front that will side through the area Friday. We’ll see plenty of clouds and could see a few isolated showers, too. As our winds turn from the north Friday, highs will dip into the upper 60s and lower 70s. This weekend, we’re not expecting a washout, but showers will be possible. On Saturday, we’re expecting mostly cloudy skies and a few isolated showers. Rain chances will go up just a tad heading into Sunday as a frontal system approaches the area. Otherwise, we’ll see mostly cloudy skies. Highs on Saturday will be in the mid 60s. Most of us will see highs in the low to mid 70s Sunday. Higher rain chances move in Monday. We could see a few isolated thunderstorms by then. Highs will be in the lower 70s.  Also, don’t forget to set your clocks ahead one hour before bed Saturday night. Daylight Saving Time begins!
