We have another gorgeous day underway with lots of sun and mild temps in the 60s. Look for a pleasant afternoon with highs around 70°.
Clouds increase tonight as temps fall into the 50s. Saturday will be mild and mostly cloudy with a chance for some spotty showers.
The rain chance really increases late Saturday night into Sunday morning, when a few thunderstorms will be possible along with showers. The heaviest rain will be in the morning, but some scattered showers will linger into the afternoon and evening. For parades and block parties, keep the rain gear close by.
For St. Patrick's Day: rain should wrap up in the morning, but clouds will linger through most of the day. It'll be chilly and breezy for parades with temps mainly in the 50s, feeling like 40s.
