Early Weekend Update:  We will have a mild and breezy start to your weekend, with high temperatures around 54 degrees Saturday afternoon.  There will be a chance for an isolated rain shower through the day Saturday, yet a better chance for more widespread rain develops Saturday night into Sunday.  A cold front will move through on Sunday, bringing rain chances for the end of your weekend, and colder temperatures.  Sunday afternoon high temperatures will be around 38 degrees.  With colder air moving in, there will be a chance for a little snow mixing in with the rain during the day Sunday, yet no major accumulations are expected through the daylight hours.  The best chance for having some accumulating snow will be Sunday night into Monday morning as another weather disturbance approaches from the south.  Monday morning could have some slick spots for the morning commute, with the chance for snow.  We stay in an active weather pattern through next week, with more chances for rain and a wintry mix midweek and again late next week.
