And now were staring at a three-day holiday weekend for mostIll get to that part of the forecast in a moment. Highs (as long as we get any sunshine) should reach the mid to upper 70s (25 to 26 degrees Celsius). Partly cloudy to mostly clear Saturday night, with lows in the mid 50s (14 degrees Celsius).

At this point, I think our best probability is for a chance of morning showers, then drying out in the afternoon.
