TODAY: Few morning showers. Afternoon showers and thunderstorms likely. Some of the storms could contain heavy rain. High 84F.

SUNDAY: Mostly cloudy, stray PM shower possible. High 77F.
After a cloudy, muggy start to the weekend, we will see times of sunshine this afternoon. With it, however, one more round of showers and thunderstorms is likely to develop. While there will be many dry breaks, stay on guard this afternoon as heavy downpours will be a threat with any slow-moving or training thunderstorms. A weak cold front will cross tonight, lessening the shower threat from northwest to southeast this evening. While the majority of the night will be quiet, the proximity of the low will maintain at least a slight chance for a shower overnight.
Winds turn easterly Sunday and that will keep the clouds around for much of the day. In fact, so much so that temperatures won't get out of the 70s. As low pressure slowly moves off the coast, there may be just enough moisture to trigger a very isolated shower Sunday afternoon under the low clouds. Otherwise, the story will be temperatures staying a good 5-10 degrees below average! This continues into Monday though winds should become veer southerly by late in the day which will offer a few more peeks of sun.
A warm front approaches from the west Monday night and that will spread showers into the mid-state by Tuesday morning. The cold front will quickly follow, offering the next chance for widespread showers and thunderstorms Tuesday afternoon and evening. As the front exits, a secondary front with the main upper level trough will bring some passing showers Wednesday afternoon. By late Wednesday, however, cooler, drier, more comfortable air pours into the state as high pressure takes control. High temperatures will stay in the low 80s late next week, with sunshine, low humidity, and crisp, cool nights. A perfect start for high school football!!
Have a great weekend, and watch for quickly changing weather today.
