I've got some good news and I've got some bad news for this weather forecast.
First, the bad news. Yes, for a seventh consecutive weekend, there will be rain. I know, I know, but this also leads me to the good news. The weekend isn't a washout. In fact, I think we might even be able to salvage parts of Saturday.
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy and seasonable chilly. Lows in the low-40s.
THURSDAY: Still quiet. Clouds and sun share the sky. Probably a little more sun than clouds, so we have that going for us. High around 65.
THURSDAY NIGHT: Clouds collect, but should remain rain-free.
FRIDAY: Here we go. A storm sliding up the coast will be dragging on and off showers through the state through the day. Highs around 65.
FRIDAY NIGHT: Showers continue. Possibly more consistent and stormier. Be careful when traveling, as visibility can drop and roads will be slick.
SATURDAY: Early in the day there will be lingering showers, however, the intensity and areal coverage begin to lift - a sign of drier weather. After lunchtime, the showers should be no more than nuisance sprinkles. I don't think the sun makes a full appearance in our Saturday afternoon skies, but there might be some brightening to the greyness as the showers lift.
SUNDAY: The storm leaves the area and the winds really start to crank up. Gusts of 30-40 mph could be common. The wind direction brings in a drier AND cooler airmass. Daytime highs to end the weekend won't make it to 60.
