Temperatures will near 90° this afternoon ahead of our next cold front with a few showers and storms possible this afternoon and evening. We'll also run the isolated chance at a few showers and storms tomorrow morning before a cold front ushers scattered activity into the area. The best chance to see rain will be Friday afternoon and evening, but not everyone will see those chances. Just keep an umbrella and your First Alert Weather App handy in case you run into any thunder and lightning. A gusty storm or two will be possible.

Gusty winds will bring MUCH cooler temperatures into the area by Saturday morning, with parts of the state even as chilly as the upper 40s! We will only top out in the upper 60s Saturday afternoon with a few lingering showers in the morning. Another chilly start is expected Sunday, with highs reaching the low 70s.

Disturbances moving overhead as our frontal boundary drifts northward will allow for scattered showers and thunderstorms throughout the rest of the 7-day forecast!
