Enjoy Thursday’s sunshine and 89-degree high, because the clouds, showers and thunderstorms are ready to roll in.

While Friday will see partly sunny skies, the chance of thunderstorms stands at 50 percent, according to the National Weather Service. At night, the chance increases to 60 percent.

Thunderstorms are likely Friday night through Saturday night and will remain a possibility through Tuesday night, according to the latest NWS forecasts.

Highs will drop to near 80 degrees on Saturday and to near 77 on Sunday, before gradually increasing into the mid-80s next week.
