Temperatures are expected to reach a high of 60 degrees during the day.
“Locally heavy rainfall and a few rumbles of thunder are possible,” the service said.

The mild, wet weather isn’t expected to last for long, though, according to the service.
A cold front moving in will bring the return of cooler than normal temperatures to the region starting Saturday through the middle of next week.
