The next few days will be mainly dry. Highs will eventually get back to the lower 80s by Thursday before a cold front brings showers and cooler temperatures for the end of the work week.

Buresh says rain and thunderstorms are likely later on Friday with showers lingering into early Saturday. While the weekend will start damp, skies will eventually clear and temperatures cool to only the low 60s.

Super Bowl Sunday will be nice overall with sunshine and temperatures near average. Warmer air returns for next week.
