Tracking a cool start to a dry Friday before the wet weekend

This Morning: Calm and clear conditions will allow temperatures to dip to the low 50s early, but a quick warmup is in store today as we see sunny skies.

Today: Temperatures reach the mid-80s with no chance for afternoon storms today. Some haze will be present from smoke in the upper atmosphere, but air quality at the surface is expected to be fair.

Extended: A low pressure system arrives from the southwest this weekend, finally bringing widespread chances for rain. We'll start Saturday dry, but in the afternoon we'll expect rain chances to grow as more moisture works in from the southwest. Highs are forecast in the upper 80s but may come in cooler if rain develops early. Thunderstorms chances grow into the evening, and rain will linger into the overnight. On Sunday, the low will pass from west to east, bringing another peak in rain chances through the region. A cold front trailing the low will keep temps in the 70s for highs on Sunday. Rain totals are now clearer with this system bringing anywhere from a quarter of an inch of rain to an inch in some spots. Drier weather sets in for Monday, where we're still cool behind the cold front as temps only climb to near 80. Next week doesn't look promising rain-wise, but we're eying a few systems to our southwest by Wednesday.
