Showers and thunder will taper off during the morning hours, revealing a sunny nice afternoon. Temperatures will rebound into the lower 80s this afternoon as humidity decreases.

Tonight will be absolutely perfect for the backyard bonfire or camping. Temps will drop to the middle 50s by Saturday morning. Get ready for lots of sunshine for both days this weekend. Highs around 75 each day. In fact, we won’t likely warm up much until the middle of next week. That’s when we’ll also get our next few rounds of thunderstorm activity.
