From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

A cold front will cross the state today giving us the chance for a few scattered showers and thunderstorms mainly this afternoon. Some of the thunderstorms could be strong to severe with small hail and gusty winds. The shower and thunderstorms are expected to be hit or miss so some areas may see a shower or thunderstorm and many areas likely won’t. Otherwise expect partly sunny skies on average today and another warm day with highs, for most locales away from the coastline, topping off in the low to mid-80s while coastal areas stay in the mid to upper 70s due to an onshore wind. Winds will shift to the northwest tonight as the cold front moves offshore. We may see a few showers over northern areas tonight as an upper level disturbance approaches from the northwest.

 

Much cooler weather will be here for Thursday. Northwest winds will usher a much cooler, less humid airmass into the region throughout the day. We’ll see a mix of sun and clouds with temperatures in the 70s for most spots with some mid to upper 60s north. An upper level disturbance is forecast to cross the state during the day and could give us a few showers mainly over the northern half of the state. High pressure will build in and bring us a beautiful day Friday with sunshine and highs near or a bit above 70°.

 

A cold front approaching from the west will bring us increasing clouds as we enter the holiday weekend on Saturday. There may be some showers later in the day as well but at this point, it looks like the majority of the day should be dry. Highs on Saturday will top off in the low to mid-70s for most cities/towns. The front will gradually move across the area Sunday and Monday keeping us under the gun for scattered showers for the latter half of the holiday weekend. Temperatures will be in the 70s for highs Sunday and Monday.

 

 

Today: becoming partly sunny. A widely scattered shower or thunderstorm possible mainly this afternoon. Some of the thunderstorms could be strong to severe. Warm with highs between 77°-87°. Southwest wind 5-10 MPH.

 

Tonight: variably cloudy. A few showers possible north. Lows between 54°-61°. Winds will become northwest 5-10 MPH.

 

Thursday: mix of sun and clouds, breezy and cooler. A few showers possible mainly north. Highs between 67°-77°. Northwest wind 10-18 MPH.

 

Friday: mostly sunny with highs between 68°-74°.

 

Saturday: increasing clouds and afternoon showers possible especially north. Highs in the upper 60s to mid-70s.

 

Sunday: mostly cloudy with scattered showers, most numerous north. Highs in the 70s to near 80°.
