Tracking unsettled weather for the weekend….The entire weekend will not be a washout, but rain is in the forecast.

As we move through our Saturday, we’ll see a good deal of clouds across the area. Some of us might be lucky enough to see some peaks of sun, but overall, more clouds than sun will be the rule. A few showers are possible here and there during the day. Rain chances will go up a bit by the evening, all in advance of our next weather system. High temperatures will be in the mid 60s.

That next weather system will slide in through Sunday. Most of the day will likely be soggy, with scattered showers and thunderstorms. Some of the storms could produce heavy rain , gusty winds, and frequent lightning. We’ll keep a close eye on the weather for you. Otherwise, expect mostly cloudy skies. High temperatures will be in the mid and upper 70s.

The front will stall along the coast into early next week, giving way to more rain and the potential for thunderstorms. In fact, we’ll be tracking periods of rain from Monday through at least Wednesday. Highs will be in the 60s and 70s.

Friday Night: Partly to Mostly Cloudy. Stray Shower (20%). Low temperatures in the mid 50s. Winds: NE 5-10 mph.

Saturday: More Clouds Than Sun. A Few Showers (30%). High temperatures in the mid 60s. Winds: NE/E 5-15 mph.

Sunday: Mostly Cloudy. Scattered Showers and Storms (60%). High temperatures in the mid and upper 70s. Winds: SW 10-20 mph.
