Periods of rain will continue early Saturday, and may turn more scattered during the afternoon.  Temperatures will be warmer with highs in the upper 60s and lower 70s.

Some off and on showers will continue on Sunday as well. Rain totals by late Sunday will be in the 1 to 3 inch range, with some locally heavier amounts.  The heavy rainfall, soggy ground and gusty winds may allow some trees to fall.
