No need for a link to the radar today as we finally get to enjoy a summer evening without the threat of showers. Unfortunately our dry “stretch” won’t last beyond 48 hours. A fast-moving storm system that comes in late Friday night will bring showers and thunderstorms back into our forecast for a good portion of Saturday.
