Discussion
Showers and storms will creep back into the forecast today from east to west ahead of a cold front. A few storms could pack a punch with damaging wind being the biggest threat. We have a lot of moisture to tap into, so plenty of juice for a few of these storms to produce heavy downpours which could lead to localized flooding. A low threat for excessive rainfall across much of the region, but expect most of the area to receive 1/2 to 1″ of rain through Friday.
A few lingering showers and storms early Friday, but dring out quickly as this boundary moves off the coast. Drier air fills in with highs skyrocketing near 90 this weekend. Isolated to widely scattered storm chances return Sunday into early next week.
