Rain showers tonight, but a sunny weekend ahead

Some rain showers should fall tonight and continue through Saturday morning before giving way to an otherwise sunny and dry weekend, forecasters said.

“It will be a steady rain, maybe a half-inch,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Charlie Foley. “The lucky thing is it will start late today and kick out of here early Saturday, so we’re going to salvage a pretty decent day.”

Today will be partly sunny and cool, with high temperatures cresting at 43 degrees. Some rain could start falling as early as 5 p.m., intensifying throughout the evening as temperatures drop into the upper 30s.

The rain should peter out by 8 a.m. Saturday, with cloudy skies gradually becoming mostly sunny. High temperatures will climb to 53 degrees before sinking into the mid-30s overnight.

Sunday “is going to be the better day,” with sunny skies and highs near 52 degrees. Low temperatures will drop to 38 degrees in the evening, Foley said.

Next week should be off to a sunny start before a soaking rain shower arrives Monday night.

“It could be more substantial rain, and continue through Tuesday,” Foley said. “The rest of the week looks pretty quiet. We’ll finally feel like it’s spring.”
