Weekend Update…Minus Colin Quinn Because No One Liked Him on SNL

It’s Friday. The final frontier of the work week. The beginning of a wet, but more mild, weekend. Should be pretty showery this weekend with potential for heavier rains on Saturday. Lingering showers could hold steady into Sunday before clearing out for a beautiful day on Monday. Temperatures have cooled down a bit with the forecast thanks to the low pressure system slowing down off the coast during the weekend and lots of moisture. What a jerk. Can’t complain after a long and cold winter though. This relief from the cold should continue into next week. Have a fantastic weekend. Relax, enjoy the nice temperatures, and have fun. Take care folks!
