Rain chances increase dramatically for Friday and Friday night, and some of this rain could be locally heavy.

Friday’s forecast

Friday will begin with a few showers and cloudy skies. The rain coverage will increase throughout the morning to widespread showers and storms for the afternoon. A slight lull is possible by the evening, before seeing another round of storms move through on Friday night.

Temperatures will be a bit haywire throughout the day, as the areas seeing rain will be cooler than those who don’t. Just to be safe, take a jacket—it will definitely get good use in the rain.

Friday night’s forecast

A second round of rain is expected Friday night. This time, the rain will come as a line of storms along a cold front. One or two of these storms may be severe, but the main threat would just be damaging winds. The threats for hail and tornadoes are low but not zero. The cold front will move through, but some leftover showers and storms are possible through mid-morning Saturday. Temperatures will drop to the 50s early Saturday morning in the wake of the front.

Saturday: Clearing out

As the rain ends on Saturday morning, the skies will gradually clear. We’ll likely finish up the day with a little sun, with a high in the low 60s.

Sunday: Beautiful

The best day of the weekend will be Sunday. Sunny skies and a high near 60 degrees will treat us to beautiful day.
