Tracking more showers and storms....Keep your rain gear handy. We have more showers and storms in your forecast, courtesy of a stationary front that remains stalled over the viewing area. This setup will keep us a bit unsettled tonight, with mostly cloudy skies and scattered rain and storms. Some storms could be strong to severe with heavy downpours, gusty winds and small hail. We'll keep an eye on it. Low temperatures will be in the upper 50s.

On Friday, the front will finally start pushing offshore, but before it does so, we'll still have a few showers or areas of drizzle here and there. However, some of us might be lucky enough to see a little sun before the day is over. More clouds than sun will be the rule though. High temperatures will be in the mid and upper 60s.

Now, let's talk about the weekend. On Saturday, we're likely going to see a good deal of cloud cover. A few late day showers are possible in advance of our next weather system. We're not expecting a washout on Saturday. High temperatures will be in the mid 60s. Higher rain chances move in by Sunday. We could see a few thunderstorms, too. Highs will be in the mid 70s. Rain sticks around for Monday.

Tonight: Mostly Cloudy. Scattered Showers/Storms (60%). Low temperatures in the upper 50s. Winds: NE 5-10 mph.

Friday: Mostly Cloudy. A Few Scattered Showers (30%). High temperatures in the mid and upper 60. Winds: NE 5-15 mph.

Saturday: More Clouds Than Sun. Chance of PM Rain (30%). High temperatures in the mid 60s. Winds: NE 5-10 mph.
