Temperatures will fall into the 50s overnight tonight, but continue to drop into the 40s during the afternoon as skies try to clear.

Showers will move in after midnight going into Friday. Showers and thunderstorms are likely through the morning commute, before just tapering off to just rain during the day. Severe weather is unlikely, but heavy rain, lightning and breezy conditions are. One or two inches or rain is possible. This weekend through Monday will be chilly.
