WEEKEND OUTLOOK: It appears another unsettled weekend is ahead. Saturday brings partly sunny skies and the chance for some afternoon showers and thunderstorms. There’s a very small chance for a strong to severe thunderstorm during the afternoon. Should this happen, the primary threats are damaging winds and some small hail.

Temperatures come down for Sunday, but the unsettled conditions remain. Expect readings in the 70s. Showers and even a few thunderstorms are possible again.
