Saturday's weather will be reminiscent of the weather we will come to expect every day during the Fall. The forecast calls for mostly cloudy skies and below average temperatures. Best chance at seeing some sunshine will be towards the east near I-35. High temperatures this afternoon will be in the mid to upper 70s. Winds will be coming ESE at 10-20 mph.
