Rain chances all the way through Saturday

April showers...and plenty of we head through the rest of the week and into the start of the coming weekend.

But don't read the extended forecast as "It's going to rain the rest of the week". There will be plenty of "dry time" between systems.

The first chances arrive Tuesday afternoon and evening as a cold front pushed through the area. This will bring scattered showers and storms back to the area. At this point, it looks like most of the activity is done and gone close to sunrise Wednesday, leaving a dry afternoon and evening. upper-level system will ride in behind the cold front. It will bring with it a chance for a few pop-shower Through the day Thursday with lots of quiet time in-between. Thursday night looks dry.

The next event moves in for the start of the weekend. The good news is the vast majority of Friday will be dry. We'll cloud up through the late afternoon, holding off the showers until late evening and overnight into Saturday morning.

And for the daylight hours of our Saturday...the remaining showers should be done by late morning into mid-day giving us a good chance to stay dry for the rest of the weekend.

Temperatures will moderate behind the Tuesday/Wednesday system...dropping our highs into the mid 50s for Wednesday and Thursday. And even with the next system due in late Friday...we look to keep highs in the mid to upper 60s Friday and Saturday.

An a little nudge of warmer air will push us to close to 70 for Sunday and Monday.
