Patrick's First Warning Forecast

It's been a warm and foggy week, with above-normal temperatures and patchy morning fog each day. And it looks like Friday will be no exception.

But changes are afoot as we head into the weekend. Our next weather maker is a powerful cold front. Ahead of that front on Saturday, we'll enjoy morning sunshine and temperatures 8-10 degrees above normal.

But the clouds will increase in the afternoon. And our rain chances will be rising Saturday night and into Sunday. I don't think Sunday will be a washout. But we do expect plenty of cloud cover and occasional showers.

Meanwhile, our temperatures will be falling, at least briefly. Sunday will be our temperature pothole, with highs a few degrees below our normal of around 67.

But we'll quickly rebound as we head into the work week. Temperatures will jump 10 degrees and our rain chances drop to around 20%.
