The rain begins exiting from west to east Saturday afternoon. The sky starts to clear as well. High temperatures rise to near 70 degrees by late-day.

Saturday evening stays dry as the sky clears fully. Temperatures drop to the mid 50s by midnight.

Saturday night will be clear and quiet with areas of fog. Low temperatures fall to the upper 40s.

Sunday sees lots of sunshine and high temperatures in the mid 70s for the afternoon.

Expect an extended stretch of mostly sunny and dry weather Monday through Thursday. High temperatures reach the low 80s each day.
