“We could be looking at more sun than cloud on Friday with highs in the low- to mid-20s (C),” Beyer said.

“Saturday will be much the same with the best chance of showers coming through the first half of the day. Saturday evening will likely be mostly cloudy, with temperatures remaining in the low 20s.”
