  • Get ready for a gray and chilly Friday around the area in the wake of a weak cold front. Morning temps will start around 40° but afternoon highs will only reach the low 50°s as skies stay mainly cloudy. A few spotty showers will be possible, primarily closer to the coast, but most of us will stay dry. Saturday stays on the cool side and should also stay mainly dry during daylight hours. A slight chance for showers will arrive by Saturday evening as an area of low pressure and warm front lift inland from the Gulf of Mexico. Showers and t-storms are likely on Sunday in association with a cold front. The front is then expected to stall, keeping good rain chances going into the early part of next week. The current outlook suggests many of us will see 2" to 3" of rain through the mid part of next week, with the potential for locally higher amounts
