A high pressure system will provide dry weather through the
weekend, with temperatures gradually warming every afternoon.

With a storm system lurking to our south, high clouds will be
present starting Saturday, and eventually rain showers move in from

Unsettled weather is then anticipated through much of the
upcoming work week as several systems impact the region.
