Today is looking hot and dry, though I can never completely rule out an isolatedafternoon storm with this much heat and humidity around. A frontal system crawls closer to our area tomorrow, increasing rain chances to 50%. The front gets even closer on Friday and gives us our best chance of rain during the 5-day forecast period. Those rain chances remain elevated through the weekend.
