Most of the area will see about a half inch of rain, with some places getting as much as an inch.

The higher amounts of rain and gusty winds with the showers and thunderstorms will be from I-95 on east.

Drying will take place behind the front late Friday. While most of Saturday will be rain-free, an upper-level trough trailing the initial front could touch off a shower in spots in the afternoon or evening hours. It would be brief, if it happens, and more places will be dry than have any of the isolated showers. With a mixture of clouds and sunshine, temperatures will rise to about 70°.

Behind this trough, high pressure will build in tomorrow night and Sunday for clear skies and cooler air. Despite a good deal of sun on Sunday, high temperatures will be only in the lower 60s.

After chilly weather Sunday night with temperatures falling into the middle 30s, it will remain cool Monday despite plenty of sunshine with temps just short of 60.

Temperatures will moderate back toward then above normal as we head through Tuesday and Wednesday. The next good chance for a few showers will come with a front on Thursday.
