Yes, they have upgraded the chance of rain for Saturday to 30% and from 
none to a slight chance (under 20% in weather jargon) on Sunday.  They 
have also dropped the expected lows by 3 or 4 degrees for Saturday night, 
meaning somewhere in the high 40s.

Still, we'll live, we probaly won't be rained on and I DAMN WELL AN NOT 
GONNA MISS CONNOR GETTING KNIGHTED (about bloody time!) even if it snows 
and rains boiling tar!
