John Dupont

Expect some sunny skies, but keep the umbrella handy.

The pattern of partly cloudy skies and afternoon or evening thundershowers remains intact Thursday.

Highs will reach the upper 80s, possibly hitting the 90-degree mark. Lows tonight will drop to the lower 70s.

Rain chance for today is 40 percent.

Expect a carbon copy through Saturday. The Sunday forecast brings only a slight rain chance, and slightly milder temperatures.
