As a low-pressure system forms and begins sweeping through the region Wednesday, expect a 60% chance of showers and possibly a thunderstorm with daytime highs remaining in the upper 70s. On Thursday, rain chances decrease to 10%, where they should stay put through at least Saturday.

Highs will begin inching up as the week continues, from the low 80s Thursday and Friday to the mid-80s on Saturday and a possibility of the upper 80s on Sunday. Overnight lows should range from 62-64 degrees.
