Expect partly cloudy skies Saturday morning with clouds building in through the day. It’ll be another chilly afternoon, as highs will return to the upper 40s. Most of Saturday will be dry but showers will build in during the evening and become widespread overnight.
We will see mostly cloudy skies on Sunday with on and off showers most of the day. Highs will warm to near 60 on Sunday. Winds will pick up, south at 15 to 20 with gusts 30 mph+ likely.
A shower or two may linger into Monday as the system pulls away from the coast. On the back side of the system will be drier and cooler air as highs next week will return to the low 50s.
