Sunshine returns for the weekend. Highs will be near 80 Saturday. A surface cold front will press through the area late Saturday and could bring showers, but the chance is very low.

Next week looks cooler and much wetter. In fact, rain moves in late Monday and will probably continue off and on through Thursday.
