First Alert Forecast: Shower chances dwindling, beautiful weekend ahead

Rain lingers in parts of the area late this morning and passing showers will remain likely through the evening hours until a secondary cold front clears our area to the east.

Winds will pick up behind this frontal boundary and could even peak at up to 20-30mph out of the NW to start off the weekend! Expect much cooler conditions for this reason, with highs only reaching the low 50s Saturday afternoon. We’ll wake up near freezing on Sunday morning before highs steadily climb back into the low-mid 60s by Sunday afternoon. Dry and mainly sunny conditions are in the forecast all weekend long!

We’ll be watching a couple of disturbances that are expected to move overhead next week, but big impacts aren’t anticipated at this time. Just anticipate the possibility of a few showers Monday into Tuesday, then again at the end of next week. Have a great weekend!
