Rain likely today; cooler and damp this weekend

Happy Friday! A cold front will be arriving from the west Friday evening, and there will be some rain and storms out ahead and along the front, and some leftover showers behind the front as well that last through Saturday morning. Highs on Friday will be in the mid-to-upper-80s and then much cooler air will filter in tonight and into the weekend. Morning lows will be in the low-50s Saturday, with highs only climbing into the mid-to-upper-60s tomorrow.

The rain showers will exit our area by the afternoon, and many locations will begin to see clearing skies as Saturday afternoon goes on. The cold front will begin to lift back up to the north Saturday night, bringing an increase of cloud cover Sunday morning and into the day on Sunday. This extra cloud cover will help prevent optimal cooling Saturday night, and thus many of us will no longer drop into the 40s by Sunday morning. A few of the normally colder spots may hit the 40s, but for the most part morning lows on Sunday will be in the low-50s.

Scattered showers will be possible throughout our Sunday as the warm front slowly lifts back up to the north. Rain chances will increase into Monday and Tuesday as another cold front arrives from the north and west. The best chance of rain will be Tuesday. A few showers will linger on into Wednesday and then we finally look to dry out by Thursday. Most of our area is officially in a drought, but these daily rain chances will certainly help that situation.
