Mainly dry and sunny conditions are expected through most of the day, with temperatures climbing into the mid and upper 80s. Humidity will be on the increase through the day as well. Storm chances enter the forecast by the evening, however storms appear to be widely scattered, so not everyone will see rain. In fact, rain chances are fairly slim for much of the area.
