Unsettled weather on tap for the weekend….As we move through this weekend, we’re not expecting a washout. However, rain and even a few storms are possible.

Today, we’ll see a good deal of clouds across the area. A few showers/areas of drizzle are possible here and there during the day. Rain chances, however, will go up a bit this evening, all in advance of our next weather system that arrives tomorrow. High temperatures will be in the low and mid 60s.  Tonight, lows will be in the mid 50s.

On Sunday, that next system will move in, giving way to a few scattered showers and thunderstorms. Some of the storms could produce heavy rain, gusty winds, and lightning. We’ll keep a close eye on the weather for you. Otherwise, expect mostly cloudy skies. Southerly winds will help our high temperatures to climb into the mid 70s.

Then, next week, keep your rain gear handy.  The front will stall along the coast through the middle of the work week, giving way to more rain and the potential for thunderstorms on and off. High temperatures will be in the 60s and 70s.

Today: Mostly Cloudy. A Few Showers/Areas of Drizzle (20-30%). High temperatures in the mid 60s. Winds: NE/E 5-15 mph.

Tonight: Mostly Cloudy. A Few Showers Possible (30%). Low temperatures in the upper 50s. Winds: E 5-10 mph.

Tomorrow: Mostly Cloudy. Scattered Showers and Storms (50%). High temperatures in the mid 70s. Winds: SW 10-20 mph.
