We could tie or break the record high of 94 Thursday as the hot, humid weather continues for one more day. The cold front is still forecast to move in by early afternoon Friday ushering in cooler and drier air. Ahead of it, scattered showers will develop from late morning through mid-afternoon, tapering off through early evening with rainfall amounts anywhere from a trace of rain to a half inch. Winds will shift to the north and become gusty up to 28 mph Friday afternoon with windy weather continuing into the evening as temperatures fall into the upper 60s by late-evening Friday. The clouds will stick around into Saturday morning as we start the day in the upper 50s to near 60, rising into the low to mid 70s in the afternoon with diminishing winds. Sunday looks warmer with partly cloudy skies as winds shift to the east and humidity starts to climb.
