Rowan weather: Nice today, a few showers possible Saturday

Christmas shopping is in high gear by now, and there are plenty of organizations looking to help friends and neighbors in need, so this weekend should be a fine time to take care of some of that.

Today will be mostly sunny and 63, with northeast wind at 3-8 mph. Tonight will be mostly cloudy, with a low of 38 and east northeast wind around 5 mph.

We’ll have a 20 percent chance of showers between 10 and 11 a.m. Saturday, and it will be mostly cloudy and cooler, with a high of 54. A good day to spend time in service to others.

Sunday will be mostly sunny and 61, with a clear night and a low of 36.

Monday will also be mostly sunny and 61, with a mostly cloudy night and a low of 42.

A 30 percent chance of rain moves in Tuesday afternoon, and it will be mostly cloudy and 65.
