Showers and a few thunderstorms increase in coverage and intensity by Saturday afternoon and evening. As a cold front approaches, a few storms may become strong, but the overall severe threat is limited. Some storms may have gusty winds into late Saturday night. The main area of showers and storms moves east by Sunday morning, but there could be a couple of lingering showers into Sunday. Temperatures drop back off into the upper 40s to near 50 for highs.
