FIRST TO ALERT: Staying dry Wednesday, but showers return Thursday. Details here.

Wednesday brings more sunshine than the start of the week, though still with some clouds in the mix. Highs continue to run a touch below average in the mid 70s, with a cool northwesterly breeze at 10-15 mph. We stay mainly on the dry side for Hump Day, but changes are on the way.

Scattered showers move into the Valley Thursday after as a disturbance travels across the Deep South. Our best rain chance looks to be in the afternoon and early evening hours, before mostly clearing out Friday morning.

By the weekend, a pleasant stretch of weather takes over, with much warmer air settling in by Sunday. A building ridge across the Southeast will keep sunshine around for an extended stretch next week, keeping rain chances low and pushing afternoon highs into the low-mid 80s!
