Forecast Discussion:

Thursday brings more dry time than wet. A few showers or storms are possible. The chance of rain is 30% but many folks will not see any rain. Highs get into the mid and upper 70s. Any storms will produce heavy rain and perhaps small hail.

Friday looks dry as a weak ridge of high pressure builds in. Highs climb into the mid 80s. Saturday, while long dry periods are expected, could bring a few PM showers depending on the location and strength of an approaching disturbance. Highs will be in the mid to upper 80s.

Sunday also has long periods of dry weather but the chance of rain is 40%. Early next week stays unsettled with highs in the 70s to near 80. The chance of precipitation each day is around 30-40% through midweek.
