On-and-off rain showers continue in parts of the region this morning, and some more heavier pockets are still possible.

Rain will likely stick around, along with the humidity, for our Thursday. A few scattered showers and storms are also possible.

Of course, the longer we remain in this pattern, the easier it is to trigger some flash flooding. It's humid, but mainly dry is the plan with just isolated rain chances! It's still too far away to pin down the nitty gritty details, but Saturday and Sunday both look good for on-and-off storms each afternoon and evening.

Most areas will be dry and comfortably warm through this evening.
