A weak storm system will develop just off shore late in the day Sunday and may produce a period of cloudy skies and a stray light shower or two by the afternoon and evening. Rain chances remain slim at just 20% and most areas will stay rain-free through the entire weekend.

Next week will start of mild with another round of 70s on the way for Monday.

Attention will then turn to late next week as a cold front may provide the chance for much needed rainfall. It’s still somewhat unclear how much rain may fall or when the best chances will be, but the weather pattern will favor more unsettled weather from Wednesday into Friday. The potential exists for beneficial rainfall across much of the region.

Beneficial rain possible late next week.
