Rowan weather: A little rain Saturday
Are you ready, or do you have a marathon planned for tomorrow? Christmas is Monday and we’ll have a bit of rain to deal with before then.
Today will start off cloudy and clear gradually. The high will be 59 with south southwest wind around 6 mph this afternoon.
Tonight will be cloudy with a low of 47 and more south southwest wind, around 5-8 mph.
Saturday brings a 60 percent chance of rain, mainly around 3 or 4 p.m. It will be cloudy and warm, with a high of 66. Watch out for the winds, though, which will be from the south southwest at 11-16 mph. Gusts could be as high as 28 mph, so make sure your inflatables are tied down.
