PM Update: Lots of clouds into Saturday, warm-up by Sunday

Clouds were more pervasive than forecast today, but temperatures still managed to reached at least 50 in many spots. With marine flow into Saturday, we may remain somewhat socked in, but the opportunity for more sunshine and warmth presents itself Sunday (and especially early next week).

Through Tonight: Skies remain mostly cloudy. That makes it not as cold as the last few nights, with lows from the mid-to-upper 30s. Winds are from the northeast at around 5 mph.

Saturday: Low clouds and even a little fog are possible in the morning. Then it’s mostly cloudy for the balance of the day. Maybe we sneak some sunshine in by mid-to-late afternoon. Highs are seasonable - in the low 50s by and large.

Saturday night: Skies are partly to mostly cloudy and it’s not terribly cold. Lows range from the mid-30s to near 40 (downtown). Light winds start coming in from the south.

Sunday: We may have some cloud cover in the morning, but sunshine should take over during the afternoon. Highs around 60 are possible and perhaps even a little warmer with enough sunshine. Wind are from the south at 5-10 mph.
