Rain could ruin weekend weather warm-up

April has definitely been a cruel month as far as weather's been concerned.

The cooler-than-normal temperatures will be replaced with something a bit more palatable this weekend though, according to the National Weather Service.

The high Saturday will climb to 68 degrees and there will be a calm, 5-to-9 mph wind coming in from the south.

Clouds will move in Saturday night, when the temperature will drop to about 45 degrees.

The only damper on the weekend weather could be a little rain on Sunday. The forecast calls for a 40 percent chance of precipitation after 8 a.m. The high will be near 62 degrees.

It also will be a tad windy, with 10-to-13 mph winds coming in from the southeast. There could be gusts as high as 18 mph, according to the weather service.

As photographed, young Steve Rzeppa certainly looks to be enjoying himself, but I'm unconvinced he is even noticing the weather.

I think that if it doesn't rain one day but then it DOES rain the next day, then that's all the proof you need to see how climate change is ruining our planet. I will certainly vote for Obama in 2016!

Yes, Clearly there is no such thing as climate change ... it's all a left-wing conspiracy project to get Obama elected twice, right? I plan to vote for President Barack Obama again as well, for his 3rd, 4th, and 5th terms as President. And then I hope President Malia Obama will nominate her Mother and Father to the Supreme Court, don't you Theo212 ?

Weekend ruining rain is nothing new. Before I retired it seemed like that was the only time it did rain, especially if we had outdoor plans.

Yeah - Acorn Glen Cooperative Preschool has a play group today so I am thankful for the warm weather - play on kiddos!
