It will be warm and muggy, but the high temperatures will only top out at the lower 80s. There will be more scattered showers and thunderstorms, this evening.

Rain chances look the lowest on Saturday. That means temps will get back to the upper 80s.

Higher rain chances come back into Sunday night's forecast. Summer-like weather comes in next week with storm chances and highs in the upper 80s.
