A somewhat subjective rating of the day’s weather, on a scale of 0 to 10.

2/10:  Not much nice about a wet weekend day, especially because the gardens are already well-watered.


Today: More rain, tapering late. Highs: Upper 60s to low 70s.
Tonight: A few showers possible. Lows: Upper 60s to low 70s.
Tomorrow: Partly sunny, isolated showers/storms. Highs: Mid-to-upper 80s.

Today is likely to be the soggier day of the weekend. But either way, local sports fields are probably doomed through tomorrow after all the rain we’ve had. The main difference from the past couple of days is warmer temperatures, near or past 70 this afternoon and into the 80s tomorrow. Most of Monday should be mainly dry before rain chances rise again.
