Today's Weather: Dry And Seasonable Ahead Of Friday Showers

We will see a lot of clouds for today with a bit of sunshine and cooler temperatures. It's been very dry as of late but that will change during the day Friday, as a dual frontal system with rain and some steadier downpours move into the region.

First, we will see rain from a warm front as temperatures rise well into the 50s and even lower 60s. There may be a break in the action before the cold front precipitation arrives later in the afternoon, bringing more showers.

Although there could be a few heavier downpours, most of the rain looks to be under half an inch. As a matter of fact, many places may stay under a quarter of an inch of rain — and we do need the rainfall.

Behind this system, it will turn cooler — especially on Sunday, when readings will stay in the 40s. There will be a moderating trend next week, although, just how warm it gets is still a bit of a question.
