Temperatures are hot enough this afternoon to spark widely scattered showers and storms forming over the viewing region. These areas of rain are fighting against some upper-level high pressure, keeping the life cycle of these showers and storms relatively brief. Still, a quick downpour can't be ruled out, but not everyone will experience a soaking this evening. Fewer clouds and breaks of clear sky will be present overnight with lows falling to around 70 degrees. A cold front will lurk off to the northeast; it may help promote the formation of a few showers and storms, moving into the region from the Carolinas and coastal Georgia. Rain coverage shouldn't exceed 30% of the area as highs rise into the low and mid 90s again. Easterly winds will likely stretch into the next few days; the upper high may weaken some, allowing temps to be near average, close to 90 degrees for highs. There are some expectations for higher rain chances by the end of the week.
