Patchy fog mixed out, resulting in periods of sunshine and temperatures approaching 80 degrees. A warm front will lift north tonight, triggering showers and storms after midnight, some locally heavy, tapering off around daybreak.

Friday will be windy and quite warm, with a southwesterly flow pushing readings into the low 90s in many areas, under mostly sunny skies. Saturday will also be very warm and humid, with a few isolated storms, but most of the day will be dry, with partly cloudy skies

A cold front will cross the state Sunday, resulting in numerous showers and a few embedded storms, tapering off in the afternoon. Temperatures will cool off into the 70s.
