SATURDAY: Clouds will be around as we start things off on Saturday. By the afternoon hours, most of us will begin to see a few peaks of sunshine! Winds will start to shift from the northeast to the southeast. This will bring in some warmer air. Highs Saturday will reach the upper 40s and lower 50s, with overnight lows dropping down into the upper 30s and lower 40s.
SUNDAY: Sunday will be noticeably warmer as highs top out in the upper 50s across the area! Southeasterly winds will help warm our temperatures, but they will also increase our moisture across the area. Scattered showers will be possible on Sunday.

Once the cold front passes through on Tuesday, lows will drop back down into the upper 30s.
