By Ian Livingston

Showers Saturday and storm risk on Sunday

Today shaped up to be another great one around here as pleasant daytime temperatures climbing through the 60s top out in the lower 70s this afternoon. Best of all, it's Friday! This evening promises to be a lovely one for any outdoor activities or festivities. But sadly, as the weekend arrives so will the clouds and rain chances. Tomorrow is looking a bit cool and showery before we warm and introduce the risk of some storms on Sunday.

Through Tonight: Temperatures in the mid-to-upper 60s near sunset dip into the 50s around midnight and ultimately bottom out around 50 in the suburbs to the mid-50s downtown. After a mostly clear start, clouds will be on the increase, and some light rain showers may enter the area by sunrise.

Tomorrow (Saturday): Wish I had better news... should be a good one for some indoor spring cleaning at least. Clouds and the threat of showers, associated with a warm front lifting through the area, persist much of the day. While we're not expecting a washout, the risk of rain will be around from morning through evening. How much rain falls and where remains uncertain. I'd lean light during most of the day and greatest concentration during the afternoon or evening. Daytime temperatures mainly in the 50s top out near 60 or in the low 60s.

Can you get in your outdoor enjoyment this evening? I know I'm certainly going to try. Especially with an increased shower threat starting now on Saturday morning (ugh!)

Latest from NWS/Sterling:

Expected cold frontal passage may not occur until late Monday afternoon...meaning we get thunderstorms both days. Sunday's storms are due to the fact we're just south of the warm front.
