Thursday will be a warmer day with partly sunny skies and a high of 80 degrees. There will be a chance for an isolated rain shower or thunderstorm, yet most of us will stay dry.

We have had cool and cloudy conditions today, yet we should have warmer and more humid conditions for Thursday and Friday.

Friday high temperatures will be around 81 degrees, which will also be our warmest day of the week. There will be a chance for some isolated rain showers and thunderstorms by late in the day. However, the bulk of the rain associated with the approaching cold front, does not look to move in until Friday night.
