Rain chances will increase throughout the day Friday. There could be some fz. rain or snow over the northern counties early Friday before a transition to rain.
Timing will be critical, because in some north and western locations, rain may start as freezing rain or sleet. By Friday afternoon the precipitation will be all rain. Showers will last well into Friday night but should begin to taper off early Saturday morning.
Saturday afternoon and Sunday will be mostly dry while temperatures will be on the increase.
