greater chance for the afternoon shower. on sunday we will have isolated storms in the mix and rain chances will begin in the late morning, the first part of the day as the sun comes up that will be the best time to assure yourself it will be dry and then toward 10:00 in the morning we will start to see showers and even an isolated storm bubbling up, with 30% to 40% coverage returning almost to a summertime pattern, not washout but definitely higher chances for rain than what i was telling you about yesterday. if you plan to go to the beach or coachman park for the jazz holiday, i will have the forecast with more on the timing specifically closer to the beaches coming up. there is a secret to saving even more money at stores like costco and sam's club what to
