Sunshine starts our weekend

WEEKEND FORECAST

We've reached the weekend! Saturday will be drier half of the weekend, but it will also be the cooler half of the weekend. The morning will start with upper 20s. The afternoon will warm into the lower 60s. Clouds will dim the sky on Sunday, and we will have some areas of rain around. There can be some dry areas, too. The day will warm from mid-40s in the morning to lower 60s in the afternoon.

OUR NEXT WEATHER MAKER(S)

The increasing rain on Sunday is the start of another prolonged period of rain. There will be dry periods, but the on-and-off rain train will last from Sunday through Thursday. Rainfall amounts through the week will range between one and four inches depending on your location. One to four inches of rain over five days would normally not be a big concern. The problem is we are waterlogged. Rivers will still be flooding. Rivers that aren't flooding will be running high. More rain is not what we need right now, and more rain will add to the flooding concerns.

THE NEXT 24 HOURS

We have one more dry day before rain is on track to return. This evening will be clear, and we will cool quickly. We'll need jackets and coats heading out to enjoy our Friday. Temperatures will drop through the 40s and into the 30s by 8 PM. We'll cool to the upper 20s by 6 AM Saturday. Saturday will be sunny, and we will warm toward 50 degrees by noon and toward 60 by 3 PM. We'll cool back to the lower 50s by 6 PM and into the 40s soon after.
