We have a relatively calm Friday ahead of us before a nasty weekend of wind and rain.

For Friday, expect a slight chance of showers until the evening. High temperatures could reach the mid-60's for a warm and muggy day.

As the evening progresses the next storm will approach, bringing us steady rain.

The rain is expected to continue well into Saturday and Saturday night with between one and one and a half inches of rain.

Winds will start to pick up from the South Southeast in the afternoon hours. Sustained winds of 30-40 mph with gusts up to 45mph are expected. Not enough to prompt a wind advisory or warning but still strong enough to cause some localized power outages and tree damage.

Winds are expected to continue into Sunday, gradually slowing down to a breeze. Rain is also expected to continue. Temperatures on Saturday and Sunday are expected to be in the mid 50's for a high, and mid to upper 40's for a low.

Monday things calm down and look almost like spring, with a partly sunny day, and highs reaching the mid 60's. Rain returns later Monday evening with continued rain on through Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. A mid week wind storm is also back in the cards for Wednesday or Thursday next week as well.

We're calling this month Fake April on twitter, because it's more like November.
