Rain will be on the lighter side during the early morning hours but will become steadier and heavier late morning through the afternoon hours.
Winds will be quite busy out of the southeast 15-20 mph with gusts to 30 mph.
The steady southeast winds during the day and moderate to heavy rain will cause street flooding especially during Friday evening’s high tide. Only minor coastal flooding is expected.
Rain will taper off Friday evening with occasional showers continuing through early Saturday morning. Total rainfall amounts could exceed 1″.
Clouds will linger through Saturday morning with some clearing expected during the day. It will be breezy and still on the cool side with highs in the low 50s.
While most of Saturday will be dry, but the better half of the weekend will be on Sunday with more sunshine and temperatures in the mid 50s.
