Some of these storms could contain heavy rain and lightning. Rainfall amounts will range from a quarter of an inch up to an inch across the area. Isolated locations could see higher totals, especially within thunderstorms. Highs will struggle to climb into the upper 70s - low 80s across the area.

Rainfall chances will decrease tonight with only an isolated (30%) chance for a shower or storm. Temperatures will fall near 70 degrees.

The boundary associated with the area of low pressure will dissipate Sunday as a Bermuda high takes over.  Expect scattered (40%) showers and storms Sunday with mostly cloudy skies. Temperatures will climb into the mid 80s.
