Weekend shaping up to be wonderful but we will have to dodge some thunderstorms in the meantime...

This Afternoon:
Increasing Clouds and Rain Chances
Temperatures: 80s
Precipitation: 30%
Isolated Storms
Lows: Upper 60s/Lower 70s
Precipitation: 20%
Afternoon Storms
Highs: Mid to Upper 80s
Precipitation: 20%

Clouds for the most part today with highs still managing to head towards that 90 degree mark. Still plenty of humidity around today and that will stay through tomorrow as well. A chance of some storms through the afternoon and evening/late evening hours and even a few during lingering during the early portion of the overnight hours as a disturbance continues to rotate through the area. Overnight lows settling down into the lower 70s. Mix of sun and clouds through much of the day tomorrow until a frontal system approaches the area and clouds pile up during the early afternoon. A chance of some storms through the afternoon and evening once again. Depending on the frontal passage (which is pegged for early Friday morning at this time) with depend on the rain ending. Ongoing forecast calls for the rain threat to end on Thursday evening/early Friday morning, however there is more evidence to support the fact that the front may get held up and not cross until daytime on Friday. With this update, keeping Friday dry for now with most of the rain activity happening on Thursday, with highs on Thursday in the upper 80s and highs on Friday in the mid 80s with lower humidity levels. If the front gets held up, we may have to introduce a chance of rain on Friday as well. One thing that continues to be consistent is the weekend forecast. Weekend featuring less humid conditions, sunshine and temperatures in the lower to mid 80s, a perfect and delightful weekend ahead.
