FORECAST IN DETAIL
Last weekend this time, we were starting a 4-day sunny stretch with 80s to low 90s. This weekend we begin a 4-day rainy stretch with 60s to low 70s. It won't rain for this entire period -- with the best chance of some dry windows today and Tuesday. But, several inches of rain may fall -- with the bulk of it most likely Sunday and Monday.
Today (Saturday): Through early afternoon, it will likely be mostly dry save an isolated shower or two, particularly north and west of town. During the mid-to-late afternoon, showers will likely become more numerous (60% chance), with high temperatures in the low 70s. Rainfall potential through early this evening is about 0.1-0.2". Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: Rain showers are likely (60% chance), especially in the early evening. A dry window may open up between mid-evening and pre-dawn, before showers resume towards morning (40% chance). Lows will be near 60. Confidence: High

Tomorrow (Sunday): Periods of rain are likely morning through evening, and the rain may be moderate at times. Rainfall amounts will probably be in the range of 0.5-75". The clouds and rain will hold down temperatures, with highs just 60-65. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: Intermittent rain should continue, with lows in the mid-50s. We may tack on another 0.5" of rain or so overnight. Confidence: Medium-High
Rain is likely once again on Monday and Monday night with highs in the low-to-mid-60s and overnight lows in the mid-50s. Confidence: Medium
By Tuesday, the front responsible for much of the rain may lift to the north (as a warm front), but some showers cannot be ruled out, especially early in the day and possibly again late. Highs should be in the low 70s. Confidence: Low-Medium
