Not the best looking Friday, but at least things improve over the weekend. We start off with some muggy air , clouds and a chance of morning showers but the chance of showers and thunderstorms increase in the afternoon. NW winds will kick in just before the showers move in. Thunderstorms and rain remain for the evening period, but there will be times where we just see clouds. Partly sunny conditions move in for Saturday.
