We are still anticipating a brief break from the rain on Saturday. Highs will stay cool in the 50s under partly cloudy skies. Sunday will start off dry, but we are expecting clouds to move back in with showers developing late in the afternoon and evening. A few possible thunderstorms could develop as well, especially heading into Monday. No severe weather is expected at this time. Drier conditions will return by Tuesday and Wednesday of next week.
Have a great Thursday!
