Tracking rain and another warm up… A chilly start this morning with temperatures in the 40s and a few spots in the 30s. We will warm into the mid 70s this afternoon with a mix of sun and clouds. A few isolated showers are possible but most areas will stay dry.

Rain and storm chances will increase for Friday as a cold front moves in. Most of the rain and storms will be in the afternoon and evening. Highs will climb to near 80 on Friday, before the front moves through. It will be windy tomorrow with SW winds at 10 to 20 mph.

A few showers could linger into early Saturday morning but most of the weekend will be dry. Expect clearing skies on Saturday and plenty of sunshine on Sunday. Highs will return to the mid and upper 60s this weekend.
