Warm and muggy… Our warming trend continues today with highs in the mid 70s. Expect mostly cloudy skies with scattered showers mixing in throughout the day. Overall rainfall will be light so rainfall totals will stay low. Highs will climb to near 80 on Friday with a mix of sun and clouds, ahead of an approaching cold front. That front will bring in more rain and even a possible thunderstorm for Saturday. The front will also knock down temperatures for Sunday and early next week. Expect highs near 70 on Saturday and near 60 on Sunday. Rain should taper off early Sunday morning with clearing skies in the afternoon.

Today: Mostly Cloudy, Scattered Showers (40%). Highs in the mid 70s. Winds: SE 5-10

Tonight: Mostly Cloudy, Isolated Showers (20%). Lows in the mid 60s. Winds: S 5-10
