The warming trend will continue on Wednesday with afternoon high temperatures reaching into the lower to middle 70s once again. A few more clouds will start to drift overhead by the afternoon and evening.

The warmest weather of the week arrives on Thursday when temperatures reach the middle to upper 70s. Clouds will thicken through the day Thursday as a cold front moves closer to the region. By the late afternoon and evening, a few light showers will be possible.

Rain chances return with a cold front late Thursday and Friday.

The best chance of rain and possibly even a thunderstorm will arrive late Thursday night as the cold front blows through the area.

Friday will start off with a lingering risk of a few showers early in the day. As dry weather filters in behind the front, rain chances will end and skies will begin to clear.

Clear skies and much cooler temperatures return for the weekend. Readings on Saturday will reach the lower 60s, but drop into the upper 50s by Sunday.
