A stalled out front will serve as a focal point for afternoon showers and thunderstorms as a second front moves in and merges with the first.

The morning hours will be dry with a mix of sun and clouds. Southeast winds will blow at 5-10 mph with a few gusts eclipsing 25 mph.

Temperatures will work their way into the upper 70s and low 80s. Dewpoints will be on the rise as well, reaching the mid 60s. Just to the west, it will be much hotter and even more humid, while to the east, it will be cooler and less humid.

During the early and mid afternoon, showers and thunderstorms will develop along this boundary, tapping into the high amounts of moisture. Heavy downpours are likely, and there could also be some localized strong wind gusts.

The main concern with these storms will be for slow moving, repeated thunderstorms with heavy downpours. Rainfall amounts could easily reach an inch, but localized pockets could see as much as 2-4 inches of rain.

Despite an overall dry May and June, this would be enough for some localized flash flooding problems. 

The rain should taper off and move out during the early evening hours, leaving a quiet nighttime period. Temperatures will back into the upper 50s this evening and reach the mid 50s overnight.

Here is a look at the weather for the next few days:

Thursday: Sun and clouds. A few afternoon showers. Morning lows in the mid 50s. Afternoon highs in the upper 70s.

Friday: Sun and clouds. Morning lows in the mid 50s. Afternoon highs in the upper 70s.

Saturday: More sun than clouds. Morning lows in the mid 50s. Afternoon highs in the low 80s.

Sunday: Sun and clouds. Evening showers and storms. Morning lows in the mid 60s. Afternoon highs in the mid 80s.
