PM Update: A few evening showers, more Saturday

By Ian Livingston

Weekend starts wet, ends sunny

Clouds and cooler temperatures arrived today as a northeast and east wind funnels in cooler air off the ocean. Highs reached into the mid-60s. After a few warm days, it reminds us we are drifting ever deeper into the cool season. A cold front slowly advancing toward the area helped bring a few isolated showers to some spots through afternoon, and that looks to continue into evening. So, grab an umbrella if headed out -- just in case.

Through Tonight: The odds of a few showers increase during the evening, but anything before midnight should remain mostly light and isolated. After midnight, shower chances go up a bit, though we're still not likely looking at anything terribly intense prior to sunrise. Lows generally fall to the upper 50s and low 60s.

Tomorrow (Saturday): Before the front moves through, we'll see a quick push of warmer air on southerly winds. So despite clouds and occasional rain throughout the day, highs around 70 -- or even a bit above -- are likely. The best shot at possibly significant rain, and maybe some thunderstorms, comes during the first half of the day into afternoon. Showers could linger into the evening, especially for eastern sections of the area.

Friday-Saturday rain totals near and over a half-inch are possible across the area, though some spots could get less and others more.

Finally back from a week of business in warm, sunny Orlando...and have to admit that I vastly prefer the weather here. Next time I think our weather is 'boring' I'll remember Orlando.

Remind me I said that when I'm crying about sleet and ice this winter!
