Some of our latest analysis has the weather system moving far enough south for some dry weather this weekend. We will include rain chances early Saturday and a slight chance for a pop-up on Sunday. There will be lots of dry hours on Saturday and Sunday. Highs will be in the upper 70s on Saturday and near 80 on Sunday.
