Tracking showers and storms….Scattered showers and thunderstorms will make way for a fairly soggy end to the work week. It’s all courtesy of an area of low pressure moving in from the west.  We’ll have a few rounds of showers and storms tonight through Friday. Some of the rain could be heavy at times, producing minor flooding.  Gusty winds and frequent lightning are also possible. Otherwise, expect mostly cloudy skies. Low temperatures tonight will be in the mid 70s. High temperatures on Friday will be in the low to mid 80s. A few lingering showers are in your Saturday morning forecast. But overall, most of the weekend should be dry. In fact, we’re tracking sunshine Saturday afternoon and on Sunday. Highs will be in the mid 80s this weekend.

Tonight: Mostly Cloudy, Scattered Showers/Storms (70%). Low temperatures in the mid 70s. Winds: SE 5-10mph.

Friday: Mostly Cloudy, Scattered Showers/Storms(70%). High temperatures in the mid 80s. Winds: S 5-10 mph.
