Thursday will bring showers by Noon as a low pressure system passes to the south further enhanced by an upper level disturbance. Rain totals should be light and under .10". The highs for Thursday will be in the low 50's with lows in the mid-30's. Showers will continue off and on throughout the day into early Friday morning. Patchy fog could be a concern by around 1 am Friday morning but will quickly dissolve as the sun comes up. Friday will start out partly cloudy as remnants of the Thursday system move out to the east. Sunshine will move in by 10 am and remain mostly sunny as the day progresses. Highs are expected to be in the mid-50's with lows in the mid-30's. Saturday will bring a warm up as high pressure builds back in from the west brining temperatures into the 70's. Saturday will be mostly sunny with little chance of precipitation as an area of low pressure moves to the north. This system will cause a tightening in the pressure gradient and increasing winds Saturday from 10-15 mph. Lows Saturday are expected to be in the low-50's. A beautiful weekend ahead! Next chance of showers are on Sunday.
