Only a 20 percent chance of rain in forecast

January 9, 2014 

The good news is that the National Weather Service forecast for this weekend shows a little symbol of rainfall. The bad news is that it also includes the figure “20 percent”. And outside of that, the forecast for the upcoming days is dry.

Patchy fog is expected in the morning and evening hours, followed by cloudy conditions Thursday and Friday. Conditions will be breezy Thursday and Friday, with gusts of up to 18 mph. Highs will reach 60 or so, with lows falling into the 30s.

Other than the 20 percent chance of rain on Saturday, the weekend ahead looks sunny and dry. Still, the 20 percent is better than nothing.
