THIS AFTERNOON/EVENING: Steady Rain Clears Early Afternoon, Pop-up Shower/Evening Storm. Hi 75.

TONIGHT: Mostly Clear & Comfy. Lo 65.

FRIDAY: Mostly Sunny, Pleasant! Hi 84. Winds: W 5-15 mph.

The morning showers are pushing out of the region after delivering roughly 0.10-0.25″ for many locations. Clouds and drizzle likely persist through mid-afternoon, however drier air is working its way across the mountains from west to east. A few showers and storms may pop-up this afternoon/evening, but those chances are lower than what this morning provided. Temperatures in the mid-70s should hold through the day.

Friday will once again be pleasant with lower humidity and seasonable highs in the mid-80s. It will be a great way to end the week! The heat and humidity return for the weekend. A couple of storms may develop Saturday evening, but most of the day may actually stay dry. A better chance for storms will occur Saturday night as a front moves through. Some showers could linger into early Sunday before the sun returns for the afternoon.

A better chance for storms arrives Monday evening thanks to another front and an upper low could keep storm chances around into Tuesday as well. The middle of next week looks cooler and less humid with more pleasant weather returning. Stay tuned!
