Some areas will still see light showers as they wake up and turn on the Breakfast Show. Scattered showers will slowly leave the area.

Laura Wibbenmeyer says the storms will stick around the longest in Southeast portions. Temperatures will top out in the upper 60s.

The weekend looks beautiful, even though Laura says high temperatures will be a little lower than first expected. Highs will be in the upper 60s. Some places will need to watch for low temps in the 30s on Sunday morning and those places will need to watch for frost.
