Showers taper down overnight but the clouds linger much of Friday with times of sunshine in between. It will be a cool end to the workweek and start to the weekend. Most of the weekend looks dry with partly cloudy skies. However, Sunday looks warmer ahead of our next surge of moisture which looks to bring rain Monday into Tuesday.
