EVENING: Increasing clouds, temps in the 40s.

TONIGHT: Cloudy with stray showers. Steady rain develops near sunrise. Low 38.

SATURDAY: Rain 6am-10am, milder and breezy with a passing afternoon shower. High 58.

Any evening plans will enjoy quiet, but cloudy conditions with temperatures in the 40s.

The next front races toward the region tonight, bringing an increase in clouds this evening followed by a few showers as early as 1 or 2a over our western counties. The bulk of the rain though will come between about 6-10a Saturday before most of it pushes east of the region. The cold front itself swings through during the afternoon, bringing another brief line of showers that shouldn’t last too long. When all is said and done, most of us will have picked up another quarter to half inch of rain…quite similar to the systems that came through earlier in the week.

Colder air moves in again behind the front with highs Sunday in the mid-40s. The start of the work week looks dry until we get to Tuesday morning. The next area of low pressure will send moisture our way with period of rain expected Tuesday and showers lingering into parts of Wednesday. Much like recently, the rain will come with warmer air but it will be short lived as the pattern turns cooler for us toward the end of next week.
