Our next substantial chance for rain will move in Friday night to Saturday morning. Rain chances will ramp up after sunset on Friday and will stick around until midday on Saturday. Highs will warm to near 60 on Saturday, the warmest day of the week. We will cool back into the 50s on Sunday with partly cloudy skies.
