Rain chances will be 40 percent Saturday and Sunday.

"Some of this rain will come as a result of sea-breeze action, as well as some pop-up showers as we heat up a humid, unstable atmosphere," Bridges said. "We can’t rule out a couple of areas of thunderstorms, but severe weather is not expected to be a big factor."

Rain chances remain at 40 percent through Monday.
