This light shower and sprinkle activity can happen essentially anytime since the atmosphere is pretty loaded but better chance of showers is later Friday into early Saturday.

The offshore winds will cause temps to quickly rebound Sunday and Monday into the 70s and potentially the 80s in the area.

Temps look to plummet Tuesday with a trough sweeping the area and marine influence returning.
