There is plenty of moisture in the atmosphere today, so numerous showers and thunderstorms this afternoon means that just about everyone will hear thunder and get at least a sprinkle. A few locations are likely to experience heavy rain for an hour or two. Be alert for local flooding.
The weekend looks warm with a scattering of afternoon thunderstorms. The chance for rain is less than today, but it might still be good to have a plan B for your outdoor activity.
In the longer range, we may be heading for a hotter, drier period by the middle of next week.
