A cold front will approach the region later today. Ahead of the front, warm and somewhat humid conditions are expected. Behind the front, we will get some relief from the heat and humidity. During the transition, some thunderstorms will be possible this evening. We are now under a marginal threat of severe thunderstorms. A lack of deep low-level moisture is the reason for the downgraded severe outlook. Gusty wind will still be possible with some of these storms.

Cooler and less humid air will begin to filter in by the weekend. Highs by early next week will return to more seasonal readings in the 60s.

Today: Mostly sunny, warm and humid. High: 88. Wind: S 10.

Tonight: Mostly clear and muggy. Low: 61. Wind S 5-10.

Saturday: Becoming mostly sunny. High: 80.

Sunday: Sunny to partly cloudy with a chance of afternoon showers. High: 71.
