From Meteorologist David Stradling:
Low Tonight: 65
Wind: SSE 5 mph

Partly cloudy skies overnight with the possibility of a shower and thunderstorm to develop into the early hours of the morning.

High Tomorrow: 88
Wind: SE 5-10 mph

 Early morning showers will move out of the area and mostly sunny skies will prevail through the middle of the day. Developing showers and thunderstorms are possible in and near the hills into the afternoon, and could possibly be severe. Those showers should move out of the area as the evening approaches. It will be a toasty 4th, so be sure to stay hydrated and lather on the sun screen! Have a great holiday everyone!

A cold front will move through early Sunday creating showers and thunderstorms through the day and some of those storms could be severe. The cold front will be out of the area by Monday, but will bring cooler air to start the week. We look to warm up through the week with afternoon showers and thunderstorms possible once again.
