There will be intervals of clouds through the period, particularly late tonight and tomorrow morning. For temps, we rolled on the high side of guidance tonight and tomorrow which was well clustered to begin with.

As of 305 PM Friday... A system will bring a band of showers and possibly thunderstorms across the area on Sunday. Depending on the timing of the band and how much recovery time occurs in the western counties, could see some additional convection form late in the day. The region stays in the warm sector as this system moves off to the northeast, allowing for mild weather to continue.

As of 305 PM Friday... Another system will provide showers and possibly thunderstorms Monday night and Tuesday. Behind a weak cold front, slightly cooler but mild temperatures can be expected for mid week.
