UNSETTLED END TO THE WEEK
We have a break from the showers this afternoon and early evening. However, showers return late this evening and overnight. The heaviest falling between 11pm and 4am. By the morning, spotty showers will linger then we’ll get a break. Through the afternoon Thursday, spotty showers will be possible but the best chance is in the late evening and overnight. Some of the showers linger into early Friday. Easterly flow, cloud cover, and showers will keep temperatures in the lower to middle 70s. After the showers end Friday morning, the sunshine breaks out mixing in and out of the clouds. Drier air works in lowering humidity in time for the weekend. Highs rebound to the upper 70s to near 80 degrees.

FATHER’S DAY WEEKEND:
A dry, comfortable weekend is in store for dads. Not only will it feel more comfortable, but plenty of sunshine is expected both days. Temperatures are warmer in the lower 80s Saturday, even warmer for Sunday topping out in the middle 80s.
Summer arrives officially Monday and it will feel like it. The heat and humidity return as a strong ridge builds in across the area. Highs soar through the 80s to near 90 degrees under mostly sunny skies. A weak boundary drops in Tuesday and could trigger a thunderstorm or two. Highs are still warm in the middle to upper 80s.
