Heading into the early part of next week, it gets dicey with a tropical system passing to the south and an approaching cold front from the west. Monday will likely start dry with partly sunny skies and high temperatures in the 80s.
Late in the day, the possibility of showers and storms could develop as the cold front arrives. Aided by the tropical system passing south and east, the front could contain heavy downpours once it arrives.
The risk of torrential downpours and thunderstorms will continue into Tuesday as the cold front passes through the region. The rain and cloud cover should keep temperatures in the 70s for much of the day.
We get to dry out on Wednesday and Thursday as high pressure slides across the region. Temperatures will be in the mid 70s to around 80 under sunny skies.
Another cold front will bring back the risk of showers and storms by next Friday. Highs will be at around 80 degrees.
