Rain returns on Friday as a cold front moves through. The biggest chance for rain is expected in the afternoon to evening. Highs will dip to the low 70s on Friday, but even cooler air will move in behind the front.

Showers should move out overnight to early Saturday morning. Clouds will clear out through the day Saturday, but it will be cool and windy. Highs will drop to the low 60s with overnight lows in the 40s. Sunshine will continue for Sunday with highs in the upper 60s with lighter winds.
