There’s a very slim chance of an isolated shower or storm during the evening hours. Coverage of aforementioned showers should remain pretty limited, if they even form. Lows will drop into the mid 60s. This particular run of the HRRR produces a storm to the north of the region, but displays the isolated nature well.

A Perfect Thursday

A cold front will approach the region on Thursday, but never quite make it into the area. That will lead to another day of warming temperatures as southwest flow remains in place. Highs will warm into the mid 80s once again with a small chance of an isolated shower or storm during the afternoon and evening hours.
