Showers and thunderstorms will arrive during the overnight hours. Some may become severe with gusty winds, downpours and frequent lightning.  Lows will settle in the 70s with "feels like" temps making if feel a bit more uncomfortable.

Tomorrow brings yet another chance for showers and thunderstorms. Temperatures will rebound to the upper 80s and lower 90s as a cold front pushes our way. This front will produce an 80% probability of showers and thunderstorms across the area. On Friday, look for a brief break from the thunderstorms and 90 degree heat. For the upcoming weekend; the front may inch back northward as a warm front and create a cooler and rather rainy day on Saturday with isolated thunderstorms. Warmer temperatures are forecast under partly cloudy skies with only a chance of isolated thunderstorms.
