FOX 5’s Sue Palka says the morning chill in the 30s will give way to temperatures in the mid to upper-40s by afternoon. Clouds will be on the increase heading into midafternoon and showers look to arrive from southwest to northeast this evening. There is a slight chance that it could briefly be mixed with wintry precipitation as it begins but will quickly transition to rain.

The rain continues into Saturday morning before tapering off. Another round of rain moves in late Saturday and continues into Sunday. That round of showers may continue into Monday. It’s possible the region could pick up over an inch of rain. Weekend high temperatures will be in the mid-50s.
