Cloud cover has been thickening late this afternoon as southerly winds drag in moisture from the Gulf and upper-level winds transport additional cloudiness ahead of our next storm system. The front will clash with the moisture to produce areas of showers and an isolated thunderstorm as the complex moves from west to east early Saturday morning. Once the system passes, clouds will eventually start to break in the afternoon, but the brisk northwest wind will return, introducing another cold air mass into the region. Overnight lows will be in the 50s with a good chance for showers and rain, but highs tomorrow will be suppressed in the lower 60s at best thanks to the cold air arrival and lingering cloud cover. Sunday will feature sunshine and chilly temperatures in the 50s. Light freezes are possible Sunday and Monday mornings. Next week appears generally unsettled with a series of disturbances impacting the area.
