THURSDAY: A cold front will slip through the area through the morning commute, bringing chances for showers and a few rumbles of thunder.

Rain ends through midday and we’ll stay dry overnight with lows dipping into the 40s.

EXTENDED FORECAST: Our next weather maker brings another bout of rain through Saturday morning along a cold front. Ahead of the front, we’ll top out in the upper 60s to near 70.
