FRIDAY: South breezes of 10 to 20mph will whisk moisture into the area for clouds and showers. The chance of showers will grow to above 50% late Friday. A gusty thunderstorm could even mix. High temperatures: upper 70s to possibly lower 80s.
FRIDAY NIGHT: Showers will remain likely and a gusty thunderstorm could still mix in (stay weather-aware and plugged-in to your WECT mobile weather app). Rain amounts: 0.25 - 0.5 inches for most places. Temperatures will be in the 60s for most of the night.
WEEKEND: Showers may linger for part of Saturday, but most of the weekend will be dry. Temperatures will reach the 70s Saturday but cooler 60s are likely for Sunday. Saturday night: 2am "falls back" to 1am as Daylight Saving Time ends. Mind your clocks and smoke detectors!
