A backdoor front lingers nearby Friday with several clusters of showers and storms riding along it. Once again, a few of these may be on the strong side. Models suggest the time to watch for these storm complexes would be Friday afternoon through
SATURDAY: The backdoor front slowly pushes through the area with scattered storms expected, especially during the afternoon. Clouds and a more northeasterly wind will bring highs down to around 82°.
SUNDAY: The backdoor front should clear the area with lesser shower/storm chances along with even cooler temperatures as highs reach the upper 70s.
The front finally washes out just south of us Monday with an isolated shower/storm chance. High pressure builds Tuesday through Thursday with increased sunshine and unseasonably cool temperatures, with highs in the upper 70s to low 80s.
