DISCUSSION:

A nice weekend is shaping up, with more sunshine and warming temperatures! Perfect timing!

Overnight, a couple light rain showers are possible as a weak weather system brushes by. We'll start Saturday with a cloudy sky, and temperatures in the 50's. As high pressure works its magic, sunshine will return by midday, and highs will warm back into the 70's.

Even warmer temperatures on Sunday with a fuller day of sunshine. Temps should top near 80 with exception to coastal regions. A weather system approaches late in the day, so clouds will start to filter in. Any rain chance will hold off until late Sunday night.

We start the new workweek with some light rain showers, especially north, and a partly to mostly cloudy sky. Temps will once again take a dip into the 60's. The rest of the week looks pretty benign, with morning clouds and afternoon sun, with seasonal temperatures in the lower to middle 70's.
