Temperatures will hit the low 80s on Friday, but don’t expect a beach day. It will be cloudy with a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms throughout the day. “It will be an unsettled start to the weekend,” said Carlie Buccola, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. There’s a 60 percent chance of rain showers on Saturday, with temperatures hovering in the upper 70s. “Out of the two days, Sunday is the better day,” said Buccola. “We can possibly see a bit of sun coming back, but it will be mostly cloudy.” Temperatures are expected to stay in the 60s and the rain could return on Sunday night, she said.
