Starting Saturday morning, a risk of showers will develop across the northwestern part of the state and become more widespread through the afternoon and into the evening.

"The storms we get this weekend, I don't expect to be severe. I don't expect then to be strong, but certainly a nuisance for any outdoor plans on Saturday," Nitz said.

A cold front will move in Sunday morning and will clear out any rain by the afternoon.
