EVENING: Scattered clouds and breezy. Temps near 70.

TONIGHT: Increasing clouds. Low 57.

THURSDAY: Cloudy skies. A stray shower. High 72.

A pleasant evening on tap with temperatures near 70 and a southeast breeze. We see the clouds increase overnight, leading to a generally cloudy Thursday. We can’t rule out a sprinkle or brief light shower, but most areas are likely to be dry Thursday.

A front will be producing a line of storms Friday afternoon. This line should push through the area between 1pm and 6pm Friday. Gusty winds and some heavy rain will occur with the strongest storms. We still expect a few showers and possible a storm on Saturday, so the second half of the holiday weekend favors drier conditions.

Sunday warms near 80 degrees with Monday reaching the mid 80s! We could even see our first potentail heat wave next week with Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday all nearing 90 degrees in the afternoon.
