SATURDAY NIGHT: Rain will move out in the early overnight hours, but after midnight, another batch will move into the area. Low: 48.

SUNDAY: We will start off the day with rain. Good news is, it will move out by lunchtime and clouds will diminish to bring us a pleasant end to the weekend. Highs will be slightly cooler than Saturday, only topping out in the low-60s.

NEXT WEEK: The work week will start out cold, but dry, with temperatures down into the low-40s Monday morning. In the afternoon, we’ll reach a high in the upper-60s which is about 10° below average. A warming trend will be prevalent during the week as highs climb into the 70s and eventually the 80s. After repeated rain chances this past week, next week will be mostly dry.
