Tracking a possible shower or t-storm for Saturday morning

After Saturday, pleasant and dry weather move in

Another warm a fairly humid day as temperatures are on track to reach the upper 80s later this afternoon.

Promises to be another quiet night but just a touch warmer as a south breeze will only drop overnight lows around the mid to upper 60s.

A cool front will be approaching the area Saturday morning along with a few showers, possibly a thunderstorm.  Unfortunately, this chance will not be the greatest when it comes to rainfall given the timing, speed, and lack of coverage and dynamics.  Bottom line, I still see under a tenth of an inch in spots.

Skies will improve Saturday afternoon with highs in the lower 80s.  We'll end the weekend with plenty of sunshine, low humidity and highs near the mid-80s.

Weather will become even more refreshing to start the new week with highs around 80 and overnight lows around 60 under mostly sunny skies.

Drought conditions may become a bit more widespread as no real organize chance of rain is anticipated until the following weekend.
