WEATHER NEWS: PM Update: Scattered showers this evening and turning cooler tonight

We made it into the 80s for a second day in a row — not too much like your typical mid-April day in these parts. A cold front is about to change that. You have probably noticed a wind shift already if you have been out and about. Showers and some storms into the evening are on the front edge of a cooler night and more springlike conditions tomorrow.

Through tonight: A cold front is moving through the region in the evening. There will be a scattered shower and storm risk through sunset or so, especially I-95 and east. Overnight, it’s cooler with lows settling across the 40s under partly cloudy skies.

Tomorrow (Friday): This is an ideal end to the workweek. Sunny and breezy, with highs right around 70, so it should feel quite nice. A gusty south wind is the main downside.
