Slightly cooler temps and a few showers for the weekend….We hope you enjoyed the 80-degree weather because it’s all going way for a while. We’re tracking slightly cooler weather as we move through our Saturday. High temperatures will be in the mid 60s under partly to mostly cloudy skies. While a couple of isolated showers are possible, we’re not expecting a washout. In fact, a little more rain is expected Sunday as a frontal system approaches the area from the southwest. Still, we’re not expecting a ton of rain from it. Otherwise, we’ll see mostly cloudy skies and high temperatures in the low to mid 70s.  Best rain chances will arrive on Monday. We could even see a few isolated thunderstorms as well.  High temperatures will be in the lower 70s. Drier weather moves in by Tuesday. Also, don’t forget to set your clocks ahead one hour before bed Saturday night. Daylight Saving Time begins!
