Skies should be cloudy throughout the day, with high temperatures cresting in the upper 60s. Scattered showers are possible between this evening, with low temperatures sinking to 61 degrees overnight.

Friday “is not looking good,” Dunham said. “Showers and thunderstorms are likely, and some may produce heavy rain.”

Showers with periods of heavy rain are likely before noon. Skies should stay cloudy all day, with high temperatures near 73 degrees. Some rain could continue falling overnight as low temperatures drop to 65 degrees.

Saturday will start out partly sunny and warm, with high temperatures near 76 degrees. Some showers are possible before 11 a.m., but the rest of the day should remain dry. Skies will stay mostly clear through the evening, with low temperatures in the upper 50s overnight.

“Sunday looks like the pick of the week,” Dunham said. “It should be gorgeous.”

Sunny skies will persist all day Sunday, with high temperatures an above-average 77 degrees. Mostly clear skies should continue into the afternoon, and low temperatures are expected to drop into the upper 50s.
