No measurable rainfall is expected aside from a few spotty sprinkles. The breeze will crank up between 10-15mph, with gusts up to 20-25mph. The strong breeze will deteriorate conditions along the beaches with rough surf, a high risk of rip currents and a small craft advisory.

Models continue to show a dry trend, as deeper moisture remains suppressed to our south. Rain chances remain below the 20% range with highs gradually warming by Sunday and into early next week.
