The overcast skies should clear out this morning bringing us a little sunshine. That should happen around noon. Once the sun comes out, we should warm up to the mid 40s. We're also watching for some much-needed rain on Sunday. A warmer pattern will settle in next week with high temperatures expected to be in the 50s for several days. There is a good chance of rain on Sunday morning. This is also your First Alert that we're looking at a potential messy system that could impact travel ahead of Christmas.
