After a breezy Thursday, winds will diminish this evening. The main thing is a dry and quiet night with temperatures falling to the low and mid 60s. Enjoy the break from the rain.
Friday will start cooler with drier air in place thanks to weak high pressure. This also translates to a pleasant day with highs in the mid-80s. Summer begins just before noon. A fast moving wave of energy will bring a chance for showers/storms after 4:00 pm tomorrow.
This first weekend of the summer season won't be a washout, but Saturday will likely start off soggy with a warm front over the region. Isolated showers and storms during the heat of the day are also possible. That warm front will open to the door to Gulf moisture moving north which means very warm and muggy days and nights.
Next week will feature a weather pattern more typical of summer. Temperatures will be higher and rain chances lower.
TONIGHT: Clearing and quiet. Low: 65. Wind: W 5-15 mph.
FRIDAY: Partly sunny and warm. Late day/evening storms. High: 86. Wind: Light S.
SATURDAY: Heavy morning rain, then drier by afternoon. High: 87. Wind: Light.
