The weekend will start out with mostly cloudy skies along with showers and thunderstorms as a cold front makes its way into the region. The high temperature will still make it to 87 degrees despite the clouds and rain showers.
Saturday is also the calendar start of summer, as the Summer Solstice arrives at 6:51 a.m. That is when the sun lines up with the Tropic of Cancer, its farthest point to the north which also makes it the day with the most daylight all year.
Sunday will be mostly cloudy with showers and thunderstorms as the front makes its way back to the north as a warm front. The high temperature will drop a bit to 85 degrees.
Monday will be mostly cloudy with scattered showers and thunderstorms with a trailing cold front pushing through the region. The high temperature will warm to 88 degrees ahead of the front.
Tuesday will be mostly cloudy with showers and storms as the front continues to push to the south. That will take the high temperature down to 84 degrees.
Wednesday will be mostly cloudy with scattered showers and thunderstorms as a series of low pressure systems will move through the area into the weekend. The high temperature will warm to 87 degrees.
Thursday and Friday will be mostly cloudy with showers and thunderstorms along with high temperatures both days in the middle 80s.
