Highs will drop into the low 80s on Saturday, closer to normal for this time of year. Expect partly cloudy skies with scattered showers/storms (30%). We will warm back to the mid and upper 80s on Sunday. Expect partly cloudy skies Sunday with another round of showers/storms (40%) as a cold front moves through.
