Good Friday to one and all. Our weekend is starting out on a beautiful note, with sun and warm weather. Don’t get too used to it, because showers and storms are ready to crash our weekend.
Highs Friday will hit the low and middle 70s in many areas. Skies stay partly to mostly sunny, with lower humidity than the past few days.
Rounds of showers and storms increase from southwest to northeast Saturday. There’s the potential for a few strong storms, but the local high-water threat looks like something to watch for.

Enjoy your Friday and take care.
