    If you don’t have set plans for Father’s Day and want to spend it outside, consider celebrating tomorrow.

    That’s because forecasters expect showers and thunderstorms associated with the remnants of Tropical Depression Bill to move through the area, with possibly heavy rainfall and localized flooding.

    But the first half of the weekend is a different story, featuring partly sunny skies and seasonable temperatures (on either side of 80 degrees), according to the National Weather Service. Clouds will begin building late in the day.

    By tomorrow night, the precipitation threat increases, lasting through early Sunday night. One to two inches of rain could fall before the disturbance departs. Temperatures on Sunday will be seasonable.

    Of course, the system could depart a little earlier, allowing at least some time for outdoor activities on Father’s Day.
