Tracking a few showers for your weekend….We’re not expecting a washout this weekend, but a few scattered showers are in your forecast.  As we move through this Saturday, a few light scattered showers are possible. Otherwise, expect mostly cloudy skies as a front stalls to our south. Eventually, that front will lift as a warm front, crossing the area today and giving way to high temperatures in the lower 60s. Tonight, under partly to mostly cloudy skies, low temperatures will slide into the mid 50s. A little more rain is expected Sunday as an area of low pressure approaches the area from the southwest. Still, we’re not expecting a washout. But a few scattered showers are possible, mainly in the afternoon and evening. Otherwise, we’ll see mostly cloudy skies and high temperatures in the lower 70s.  Scattered rain is in our Monday forecast as well. We could even see a few isolated thunderstorms.  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 tonight. Daylight Saving Time begins!
