Scattered Showers and Storms Likely This Weekend
A weak cold front will drift into our area, giving us a chance at some showers and storms that will last through the weekend and into the work week. If the cold front stalls just south of our area, cooler conditions and scattered showers still look possible, but heavier rains will stay closer to the coast. If the front stalls over us, we'll see a better chance of heavy rains. Severe weather is not anticipated, though isolated severe wind gusts and heavy rain will be the main threat.
Suffice it to say an umbrella wouldn't be a bad idea for this coming weekend, though not all of us will need it. Increased clouds and a nice northeasterly wind should keep afternoon highs tame, near 90. A daily afternoon shot at rain continues into next week.
