Friday: A cold front will pass through the area, which will increase rain chances slightly. Rain chance is currently around 20-30%. Highs will be in the upper 70s to lower 80s.

Weekend: The Friday cold front will begin to lift back to the north as a warm front on Saturday and Sunday. Rain chance is near 30-40% on Saturday.
