A cold front is on the way.  That will give us increased rain chances this weekend.  It will also give us some cooler air.

Chances for rain will continue to rise as we head toward the weekend with a 60% chance for showers and storms Saturday and a 50% chance for general showers on Sunday. The higher chances for rain will keep the temps lower. Highs over the weekend will only reach the 80s. A cold front will move in.  That will not only enhance our rain chances, but cooler air pushes in behind it.  A wedge may set up late weekend into the beginning of the week to bring us into the lower 80s with some showers lingering into the first part of the week. 

The rain chances continue Tuesday, but they will be a little lower at 40%. We go down to a 20% chance Wednesday, Thursday and Friday with highs back to the upper 80s.
