Thursday will be 86, with that same 30 percent chance of storms and showers. The low will be 67. We’ll have a 30 percent chance of showers before 11 p.m., and then a chance of thunderstorms after 5 a.m.

Friday, same old thing. A 30 percent chance of showers in the afternoon, with mostly sunny skies and a high of 89. Same chance of rain Friday night, with thunderstorms in the mix. The low will be 69.
