A 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms will drop off by 8 p.m. Friday night, gradually clearing and dropping to 58 degrees. That will make way for a sunny Saturday, with a high of-- wait for it-- 75 degrees! It could get a bit windy in the afternoon, with gusts of wind as high as 30 mph. Saturday night will be mostly clear with a low of 47 degrees. Sunday will be sunny as well, but cooler, with a high of 59 degrees. We shouldn't see rain again until Monday, the NWS says, so enjoy it while you can. How to make the most of it, you ask?
