Friday and the weekend: Mostly sunny and cold for Friday and Saturday, with rain returning Sunday

Chilly high pressure will continue to build into the area tonight into Friday, bringing freezing temperatures very close to the coast to start the last day of the work week. Temperatures will struggle to reach 50° despite full sunshine. Expect mostly sunny skies to prevail through Saturday as temperatures moderate back into the mid-50s in the afternoon. Our next storm system begins to affect the area possibly as early as late Saturday night, with rain likely on Sunday. Can’t rule out a few rumbles of thunder, either. It’ll be noticeably warmer — highs in the mid-60s will be common Sunday in the warm sector of the storm system before it moves through late Sunday into early Monday.
