Following a week of often 90-degree temperatures and short but sudden afternoon downpours, the coming week should have temperatures reaching the high 80s and partly sunny or partly cloudy skies.

While rain is expected to be absent throughout most of the week, chances for rain will mildly increase as the weekend approaches, according to the National Weather Service.

Partly sunny skies are expected throughout today with a high near 88 degrees, according to the NWS. An moderate eastern breeze throughout the day is expected to taper as the evening wears on, bringing with it partly cloudy skies with a low around 64.

Partly cloudy skies will continue through Tuesday, which is expected to see a high near 89 degrees and a low around 65.

Wednesday is expected to bring mostly sunny skies with a high near 88 degrees. Clouds will become more prevalent come nighttime, however, and a low around 68 degrees is expected.

A 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms is expected for Thursday, which otherwise will remain partly sunny throughout the day with a high near 89 degrees. Cloud coverage will increase in the evening where a low around 71 degrees is expected.

The chance of showers and thunderstorms will increase slightly on Friday to 30 percent, but skies are expected to be partly sunny with a high near 88 degrees. The chances of rain will decrease slightly to 20 percent in the evening, which will be mostly cloudy with a low around 71 degrees.

Saturday’s weather is expected to be much like Friday’s, with a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms and a high near 86 degrees.
