A frontal boundary looks to slide into the region on Wednesday and stall through mid-to-late week. That will be the culprit of increased rain and storm chances for Wednesday through next weekend.

Highs on Wednesday will top out in the 80s and 90s under partly cloudy skies. Rain and storm chances are in the forecast for midweek. A shower or storm will linger into the nighttime hours Wednesday and lows will hover in the 70s.

Along with the increased rain and storms, the humid factor will also remain high for the week ahead. Making it feel sticky when stepping outside.

Due to the increased rain chances for Thursday and Friday, afternoon highs late week will warm into the 80s under partly to mostly cloudy skies. Overnight lows will hover in the 60s and 70s through the end of the week.

As of right now, this more active weather pattern looks to continue into the weekend ahead. Afternoon highs will hover in the 80s and 90s Saturday and Sunday with isolated to scattered rain and storm chances possible. Overnight lows will again hover in the 60s and 70s.

While rain chances are forecasted to increase through the week, it does not look to be a washout for everyone. Typical of summer time, the stormy weather will be rather hit-or-miss across the region. With some areas seeing gusty winds, heavy rain and frequent lightning, while others will remain dry.
