The bulk of the activity will clear the area around daybreak Friday (give or take an hour or two).

Mild tonight with overnight lows in the upper 60s to lower 70s.

Gradual clearing skies throughout our Friday.

In fact, it'll be back to mostly sunny and warm conditions by the afternoon.

Look for highs to push the mid-upper 80s.

Heading for the lower 90s this weekend!

Be sure to hydrate and find ways to stay cool if you'll be out and about.

A dry weekend is expected.

Hot conditions sticking around into next week as highs push to near-record territory (low-mid 90s!).

Rain chances will also remain fairly isolated in nature.

Have a good one!
