What  a fine close to the work week with low 80s and low-to-moderate humidity.  As winds become out of the south Saturday, it turns more humid.  By late Saturday into Sunday, showers and thunderstorms are possible as a slow-moving cold front passes through the region.

Through Tonight: A great night to be out and about.  It’s partly cloudy to mostly clear with lows in the low 60s in the cooler suburbs to the upper 60s downtown.  Calm winds.

Tomorrow (Saturday): Mostly sunny skies in the morning, with likely increasing cumulus clouds in the afternoon.  There’s an outside chance of thundershowers by late afternoon (20-30 percent), with the best odds in western areas.  Highs are in the low-to-mid 80s with winds from the south at 5 to 10 mph.

Saturday night and Sunday: Showers and thunderstorms are a strong likelihood at times in this stretch (60-70 percent chance), so Saturday is definitely the better outdoor day.  Having said that, I’d expect some dry windows…perhaps extended ones…to allow for perhaps abbreviated outdoor activities during the day Sunday (it’s not a washout).  When it does rain, it may be heavy times.  My advice, stay tuned to our forecasts and keep your radar apps close at hand.  Saturday night’s lows are in the upper 60s to low 70s, and Sunday’s highs are in the low 80s with a good deal of humidity.
