A chilly night but rain is coming Friday.

Overnight: Mostly Clear and Chilly

Lows: 39-44 | Wind: Light

Friday: Some Morning Sun then Clouds and Rain by Mid-Afternoon

Highs: Near 55 | Wind: E 10 m.p.h.

Saturday: Mostly Cloudy Some Morning Showers-Sunny Warmer PM

Highs: 68-73 | Rain: 0.5-1"total

Dry air is over us now and boy is the pollen high again at a count of 2,177 grains per cubic meter of air, or roughly how many pollen grains we breath in during an hour.

With moisture coming in from the west there will be lift or vertical motion over us and plenty of clouds moving in and rain likely (now on 70 percent chance) by  Friday afternoon. The front will still be around Saturday morning, so some showers will linger into the early part of the weekend. But Easter Sunday looks sunny and warm.
