NEAR TERM: Clouds will likely be here to stay through the rest of the day with a few breaks here and there of sunshine. Highs will top out in the upper 60s and lower 70s amid a south breeze picking up this afternoon. Rain will hold off until after sunset tonight - gradually increasing through the overnight hours. A gusty shower or storm can't be ruled out - through severe threat remains negligible. Most of the rain will be out of the area by mid-morning with increasing amounts of sun Saturday with highs in the 60s to near 70.
NEXT SYSTEM: Another area of low pressure will develop to our west - trekking eastward into Sunday. We'll likely start the day with sunshine, giving way to clouds through mid-day and rain emerging by sunset. Rain could be heavy at times Sunday night into early Monday morning. In the wake of that system - clouds will gradually clear Monday with highs only managing the lower 50s.
EXTENDED FORECAST: Temperatures will run below average through much of the week ahead with highs in the 50s, lows in the 30s - generally. Another, mainly weak, system moves through late Tuesday and early Wednesday, offering a few showers and another cool down. Temperature will claw their way back to the lower 60s by next week.
