You will need the umbrella, rain boots and coat today! Widespread showers this morning will become more scattered this afternoon. An isolated thunderstorm is also possible today, but no severe weather is expected.
We'll hang on to the rain chances through the early afternoon hours on Friday, with 0.5" to 1" of rain expected. That is some good news, after a week of dry weather. Also, the rain clears out in time for the weekend and the temperature goes up! We'll be in the 70s with full sunshine on Saturday and Sunday. Daily rain chances return again early next week.
