<span-size:9.0pt;font-family:"Helvetica","sans-serif";color:#333333">Mostly cloudy skies move in today. Our rain coverage moves up to 40% for this afternoon. Highs will reach the mid 70's for most of the area. Mostly cloudy skies remain for tonight with lows in the lower 70's. By Friday, our rain coverage is up to 80%. Highs will remain around the mid to upper 70's. The front giving us these rain chances will also drop temperatures down.

By Sunday, rains move out, but cold temperatures stay. Sunday sees start up temperatures in the upper 30's. Highs will reach the lower 50's under partly cloudy skies.
