A forecast of possible thunderstorms Friday suggests the wet weather should end before noon and in time for sunshine and music outside for the first weekend of April.
Temperatures Friday are expected to be in the mid 70s for a beautiful afternoon but rain may move back in later at night.
Will a brief respite bring out the musicians on the street on Friday night? Time and weather will tell.
Of course, Friday is April Fool’s Day.
