Partly sunny skies to start, but clouds will be on the increase. Look for a slight chance (20%) for showers this afternoon and tonight. With limited amounts of sunshine, high temps will remain in the low 80s.

The chance for the showers will increase as we head farther into the weekend. Right now we are looking at a 40% chance, Saturday 50%, and Sunday 40%. It will not be a total washout, but when it is not raining skies will be cloudy. So not the prettiest looking weekends before going back to school for many.
