THURSDAY'S FORECAST ... Sunny and hot, with a slight chance of rain

John Dupont

Expect a mostly sunny day as we near the end of the work week, but a chance of rain lingers.

Daytime highs Thursday will approach the mid 90s. Overnight lows will drop into the mid 70s.

Chance of rain is only 20 percent.

The weekend brings a similar weather pattern, with daytime highs in the 90s and lows the lower 70s.

A 30 percent chance of rain is in the forecast Friday, but the probabilities leave the picture entirely by the end of the weekend.

Rain chances remain only minimal through the middle of next week.
