The North County will likely see another round of showers and thunderstorms through the evening Thursday afternoon and into early Friday before high pressure system and a cold weather front slowly move into the region, according to the National Weather Service.

Much of St. Lawrence County was hammered with rain, hail, thunderstorms and damaging winds Wednesday night and into the early hours of Thursday that caused power outages in several towns and is said to have caused a fire that destroyed a barn in Morristown.

The service predicts numerous showers will continue through Friday with chances of thunderstorms until midnight. Temperatures will reach the mid 70s and the chance of rain is 70 percent.

The weekend will likely see clear skies with temps near 60 on Saturday and mid 60s on Sunday, the service says.
