WEATHER SUMMARY: A front will swing through the area and off the coast Thursday morning taking with it the deep moisture currently over the region. However, some areas could still see a passing shower tomorrow afternoon as some upper level energy passes overhead. Skies will clear Thursday night and that will set the stage for a nice summery holiday weekend. In fact, 90 degree warmth is likely over the weekend inland, so the beaches will certainly be a popular spot!

Tonight: Scattered showers and thunderstorms, few could be strong to severe with damaging winds. Lows upper 60s.

Thursday: Partly sunny skies with the chance for some scattered showers and perhaps some rumbles of thunder in the afternoon. Clearing up in the evening. Highs near 80.

Friday: Sunny skies with lower humidity. Warm highs in the mid 80s.
