It was a rather pleasant morning before clouds thickened and lowered through the afternoon. Highs around 50 are almost right where they should be in late February. We’ve got a lot of rain in the forecast for the weekend, and it’s getting underway this evening.

Tomorrow (Saturday): Overnight rain will taper to showers in the morning. A couple could be heavy, though. By midday, it should all be moving out. Any fog that may remain should tend to dissipate. Some afternoon clearing is possible, as temperatures rise deep into the 50s to around 60. Rain will become more likely again at night. Winds will blow from the southwest around 10 to 15 mph.

Sunday: Periods of rain seem likely Sunday. There’s some chance it will be focused on the morning as a frontal boundary slinks south. Some of the rain could be moderate to heavy, although it won’t tend to last long if so. Highs will reach the mid-50s to around 60. Southerly winds will blow around five to 10 mph.
