There will be daytime showers, but they should be less intense and widespread than today’s storms. A weak cool front will push across the area Friday night. This will result in less humid and slightly cooler weather this weekend. Highs will reach the 80s, but morning lows will be well down in the 60s. Next week will bring about a warming trend with highs back to near 90 degrees or higher. Higher humidity will also result in it feeling much warmer than the actual temperature.
