Rain chances will increase first for our northern areas in the morning; central areas by mid-day and southern areas into the afternoon and evening. Highs will range from the 70s to near 80. A few storms could be gusty amid heavy rain – continuing into Friday night.
WEEKEND PLANNER: Rain showers will taper through Saturday morning with some clearing possible through the afternoon hours. Highs will rebound back into the 60s through the afternoon hours. The front that brought the rain and storms Friday will back northward through Sunday, helping to spark more rain and storms through Sunday.

EXTENDED FORECAST: Our consistent influence from the subtropical jetstream continues into the first week of Spring. Expect a rebound through the 70s Monday amid continued opportunities of scattered showers and storms. Upper ridge to the south will muscle back north to push temperatures back into the 80s by mid-week with rain chances tapering off.
