Partly sunny skies and high temperatures in the mid- to upper 50s are in the forecast for Friday and Saturday. Rain is likely Saturday night into Sunday.
The area will finish the week with a pleasant Friday morning beginning with mostly sunny skies and highs reaching near 58, according to the National Weather Service. Winds will come from the southeast at a pace of 5-7 mph in the afternoon. As night falls, the area will see partly cloudy skies. Temperatures are expected to cool down to around 44. The southeast winds will maintain at around 5 mph.
Saturday offers a partly sunny day, with temperatures again hovering around the mid-50s, peaking near 56, according to the NWS forecast. A light southern breeze of about 6 mph is anticipated in the afternoon.
Saturday night, however, introduces a slight change. While the majority of the night will be mostly cloudy, there’s a 20% chance of showers after 1 a.m. Temperatures will be slightly warmer, with lows around 49, and the calm winds will turn south at around 6 mph post-midnight.
The shift in weather comes Sunday, as the area should brace for showers and the possibility of thunderstorms, especially after 4 p.m. The day will be warmer, with highs near 66, but this comes with increased wind activity. A south wind will blow at 7-16 mph, gusting as high as 30 mph. The chance of precipitation skyrockets to 100%.
Sunday night continues the wet trend, with showers and potential thunderstorms before 1 a.m., then transitioning to steady rain. Some storms might bring heavy rainfall. Temperatures will drop significantly to around 39, and again, the likelihood of precipitation is pegged at 100%.
