Tuesday, June 12, 2018 - 5:58 am

Expect plenty of sunshine today with high pressure remaining in control until our string of dry weather comes to an end on Wednesday as a cold front moves into the region late

in the day and helps enhance the potential for showers, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).

The forecast calls for a high of 83 degrees today with sunny skies. Winds will be south at 9 to 14 miles per hour. An overnight low of 63 is expected.

The threat of some thunderstorms will exist Wednesday afternoon and evening with a 60 percent chance of precipitation, NWS says. The cold front will exit the region late Wednesday night and bring most showers to an end.

A high of 79 is predicted for Wednesday and an overnight low of 58 is in the forecast.

Cooler temperatures and the threat of more showers is expected for Thursday, but a warming and drying trend will begin on Friday and continue into the weekend, the service says.
