Saturday will continue mild and mostly cloudy. A few spotty showers will be possible through tonight. Rain chances will be 30% to 40% through about midnight. Temperatures will hover in the upper 60s and low 70s this afternoon, then fall to middle 60s for overnight lows.
Rain chances zoom to 70% after midnight through Sunday mid-morning as showers and thunderstorms move in. A few of those showers and storms could be strong to severe. The heaviest rain will likely come early Sunday morning. Then some showers will continue into the afternoon. The rain chance will sit at 50% for the afternoon and evening... so grab rain gear if you're heading to St. Patrick's Day parades on Sunday.
It quickly turns chilly and breezy for St. Patrick's Day on Monday. Temperatures will stay in the 50s under mostly cloudy skies. Keep in mind that it will feel like 40s with the wind, so bundle up if you're heading to parades like the Downtown Irish Club parade in the evening. We'll have a 30% chance for light rain in morning, then a 20% chance for sprinkles or a shower during the afternoon.
