Wednesday was warm and muggy, with highs approaching 80 degrees. Rain and thunderstorms will continue into the evening, but the severe weather threat should diminish after 8 p.m. We will still be dealing with this system through early Thursday morning, so rain showers and thunderstorms are still possible. Some sunshine will break out Thursday afternoon, and high temperatures will climb to near 80 degrees.
The weather will be much nicer Friday through the weekend, with partly to mostly sunny skies and highs in the lower to middle 70s.
