Daytime highs should fall within a degree on either side of 90, with lows ranging from 71-73 degrees. A stationary front will mean variably cloudy skies and a 30% chance of rain Saturday and Sunday, with a possibility of precipitation on Saturday night under a weak low-pressure system's sway.

By Monday, chances of showers and thunderstorms climb to 40% with a rise to 50% expected Tuesday.
