We’re tracking a soggy stretch of weather starting Friday.

Partly cloudy skies overnight, with increasing clouds tomorrow morning. Temperatures will fall into the lower 70s overnight.

The stationary front will lift north and an area of low pressure will build in on Friday. A few showers possible tomorrow morning, but the bulk of the rain will arrive in the afternoon and evening. Temperatures in the low to mid 80s.

Rain and storms chances will continue into the weekend, so keep those umbrellas handy! Highs in the mid and upper 80s. A front will stay stalled to our south with several pieces of energy riding along it, keeping rain chances in the forecast through Tuesday.

Looks like we could finally see some dry weather next Wednesday and Thursday.
