Under cloudy skies, temperatures will fall to the upper 40s and lower 50s by sunrise Saturday morning. There’s a slight chance for rain overnight, but generally, showers won’t return until the early morning.

There’s a threat for severe weather Saturday evening so stay weather aware! Temperatures will warm up to the middle 60s tomorrow afternoon with a potential for scattered showers during the day. The chance for rain is 70%. There’s a much more likely chance for thunderstorms later tomorrow night when a front moves through bringing heavy rain and a potential for severe weather. Thunderstorms are likeliest from sunset Saturday through 4 a.m. Sunday with temperatures dropping to the upper 50s by Sunday morning.
