SATURDAY:  Small, yet increasing rain chances throughout the day, afternoon rain chances near 20% but bump up to 40-50% late during the evening. Highs in the 50s and low 60s.

SUNDAY:  An 80 to 90% rain chance and a few thunderstorms may even mix with the showers. Temperatures will grow to the 60s for Sunday amid gusty south breezes.

A PEEK INTO NEXT WEEK: In the wake of Sunday's storm system, Monday through Thursday of next week will likely feature variable clouds, low rain chances, and chilly daily high temperatures of mainly the 50s on Monday and 40s for subsequent days ...and midnight on Wednesday will likely have chilly 20s and 30s to ring in 2014!
