Synopsis<span-size:9.0pt;font-family:"Helvetica","sans-serif";color:#333333">

<span-size:9.0pt;font-family:"Helvetica","sans-serif";color:#333333"> 

<span-size:9.0pt;font-family:"Helvetica","sans-serif";color:#333333">Clouds will continue to move back in to the area today. And after starting off at or below the freezing mark, most areas will warm to the lower 60's. By Friday, we'll see enough moisture and instability to call for a 30% coverage of showers. Highs on Friday reach the lower 70's. Saturday looks to be on the quiet side with our afternoon warming to the mid 70's. By Sunday, we'll ramp our rain coverage up to 60%, with afternoon temps reaching the mid and upper 70's. Mostly sunny skies will move back in for Monday. A front moving through will only allow our high temperatures to reach the upper 60's.
