Showers should clear up for Friday night plans
It will be so cloudy today that the UV index is coming in very low at a 1 out of 12.
Today & Tonight: After some light rain this morning, a few heavy downpours will be possible later this morning and through the afternoon. It will be mostly cloudy and humid with temperatures in the 80s, and about half of the area is expected to see scattered showers. Any activity that bubbles up will be short-lived and the rain will let up for any evening or late-night plans. Overnight conditions will be mostly dry with temperatures in the 70s.
Up Next: Showers will be more isolated for Saturday, but it will be possible to see rain in the morning and afternoon hours. Temperatures will be near 90 degrees. We will continue to dodge showers on Sunday afternoon too. Weekend plans?
