OVERVIEW: This evening with the heat and humidity building and an advancing cold front, an evening shower or t-storm is possible. A better chance overnight into Saturday as a cold front approaches. It will bring scattered showers and thunderstorms for much of the day. It clears the area Saturday night leading to a nice end to the weekend with Mother’s Day dry and mostly sunny.

Showers and storms possible again Wednesday with the best chance Thursday as a cold front swings through. Cooler weather will follow late next week.
