50s return this weekend

FREEZE WATCH: A freeze watch is in effect Saturday morning from 2 AM to 10 AM with temperatures looking to go a bit below freezing. If you planted any sensitive flowers recently, take action to protect them from damage.

Tonight: Skies are mostly cloudy with a slight chance for a few more scattered rain/snow/sleet showers. Low of 34 degrees. Breezy conditions remain overnight with gusts up to 25 mph.

Tomorrow: More scattered rain chances look to be in the weather script, mixed with a few snow showers in the morning. Scattered rain tapers off after 5 PM. High temperature on Friday gets into the mid-40s. Another cold day. Still a bit breezy with gusts up to 20 mph.

Weekend: Back in the 50s! Saturday and Sunday are both great days to be outdoors until some rain chances move in Sunday afternoon. Not breezy Saturday, but those conditions return on Sunday.

Solar Eclipse: It looks to be a nice and warm day for the eclipse, with a little uncertainty for cloud cover, but we look to have either partly cloudy or mostly sunny skies for the eclipse. We'll keep you posted on the forecast leading up to the eclipse! Temperatures right before the eclipse look to be in the mid-to-upper 60s.

7-Day: A slight rain chance exists Monday evening with 70 degrees for the high then. Another slight chance on Tuesday, where another 70 degree day is forecast. What looks to be a defined weather system at this point moves in Wednesday/Thursday bringing rain/storm chances.
