Unfortunately any rain and storms will be spotty so consider yourself lucky if you get a downpour. Many of us will end up dry. This is just one model showing just how spotty the accumulating rain will be.

Overnight some cooler air will move in as the showers move out. Also, some wildfire smoke is expected to move in behind the front and could reduce air quality quite a bit tonight into early Friday morning. Don’t be surprised if it becomes hazy tonight and early Friday.

Friday will be cool but rather comfortable but the weekend will be warmer. Highs in the 70s and 80s are likely over a very comfortable weekend.
