Pop-up showers and storms possible Wednesday and Thursday

The chance for rain will pick back up again into Thursday morning and stick with us on and off through tomorrow, as we warm into the lower 90s again.

This larger warm up is ahead of a slight rain chance into Sunday morning, where a cold front will bring us cooler temperatures and less humid conditions into early next week.
