Early Weekend Update:  We will have a warm start to the weekend with Saturday afternoon high temperatures around 84 degrees.  There will be a chance for widely scattered rain showers and thunderstorms.  Temperatures will be mild Saturday night, with overnight low temperatures around 65 degrees, and the chance for a spotty rain shower.  A cold front will move into the region on Sunday, bringing the best chance for a widespread soaking rain.  The best chance for rain looks to be late Sunday into early Monday.  Sunday afternoon high temperatures will be around 76 degrees.  Cooler air moves in behind the cold front, with highs in the upper 60s for Monday.  Temperatures remain in the upper 60s to lower 70s through next week.
