The current spell of hot, dry weather will take a temporary hiatus Thursday and Friday. Afternoon temperatures on Thursday are likely to be 15-20 degrees cooler than they have been these last few days. There will also be an increased chance for showers and thunderstorms Thursday afternoon and evening, and maybe on Friday too. Not everyone will benefit from some rain, but it will likely be the best chance we have seen for rain in a while, and there may be a few local spots with locally strong thunderstorms. We will probably trend back toward warmer weather over the weekend just in time for the June solstice on Saturday afternoon at 3:44 PM.
