Detailed Forecast

Tonight:  Any evening showers will wind down by midnight, with mostly cloudy skies sticking around through early Friday.  Lows will drop into the 50s for most.

Tomorrow: We will have a bit more sunshine during the morning hours, which will help temperatures warm up.  Highs will be back in the 70s and 80s during the afternoon.  The clouds will thicken up during the mid morning and into the early afternoon with another round of afternoon showers and thunderstorms.  Any storms that develop could produce enough heavy rain to prompt flooding concerns.  We'll be tracking that closely.

Extended: Temperatures will gradually warm up and conditions will gradually dry out as we head into the weekend.  Weekend high temperatures will warm into the 70s and 80s.  Several waves are headed our way next week, which will result in slightly cooler temperatures and an increased chance for storms.
