Today's Weather: Sunshine, But Clouds And Damp By Friday

It's another beautiful start to the day with plenty of sunshine and cool temperatures. Readings will reach near 60 this afternoon over inland areas; however, at the coastline, the wind off the water will keep it in the 50s at best.

An area of clouds and showers will start to approach from the west late this afternoon so you'll notice high clouds which are the forerunner of the system. Some showers arrive tomorrow morning, probably near sunrise, but also likely post-morning commute. I'm not expecting much in the way of total rainfall. Most areas will see around a tenth of an inch with a few spots reaching a quarter of an inch of rain.

The inclement weather will not last long and we actually have a nice day for Saturday. It's been quite a while since sunshine graced the region on Saturday and this weekend will see temperatures in the 60s to go along with the blue skies.

On Sunday another weather system approaches the area with thickening clouds and perhaps a few showers late in the day. This is the start of several days of clouds with opportunities for precipitation into Tuesday.
