The two rounds of thunderstorms, some severe and even tornadic, are history and now we transition into a gradually quieter weather regime. After today’s stickiness, much drier air trickles into the region tonight and Friday – though a stray shower can’t be ruled out.

Through Tonight: Under mostly cloudy skies, a few sprinkles are possible overnight. Lows range from the upper 50s in the cooler suburbs to the low 60s downtown. Winds are from the northwest at 10-15 mph, sometimes gusting a bit higher.

Tomorrow (Friday): Skies are partly sunny much of the day, but, with some cold air at high altitudes, a widely scattered shower is possible in the afternoon (30 percent chance) with highs in the mid-to-upper 70s. Winds are from north at 10-15 mph with some gusts over 20 mph.
