A cold front and associated disturbance will approach the region today with a chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms developing this afternoon. The greatest chance for storms will be across northern and eastern portions of the region and a few of the taller updrafts could contain gusty winds or hail up to 1 inch in diameter.

A lingering shower or storm is possible in spots on Saturday as another disturbance rotates around the departing upper low, especially in eastern areas, but high pressure will eventually build in through the weekend bringing pleasantly mild conditions and considerable sunshine for Sunday. Another cold front will then approach the region by late Monday with rain showers returning into Tuesday.
