We will stay dry through Friday. Expect a partly cloudy sky then with warmer temperatures in the lower 90s for many. Storms return for the weekend.

As a cold front moves through on Monday, scattered showers and storms are possible. Drier air will work its way in quickly as high pressure takes control.
