Tomorrow (Friday): Mostly cloudy in the morning, with rain showers developing from west to east between around 2 and 5 p.m. Showers are likely to continue through around 10 or 11 p.m. Some embedded thundershowers cannot be ruled out, especially in areas to the south and east which may see more in the way of sunshine into the afternoon. Rainfall totals are probably around 0.25-0.5″, but locally heavier amounts are possible.  High temperatures range from 65-70. Winds are generally from the southeast at around 10-15 mph.
