We get a break in rain coverage today but an minor disturbance will bring areas of heavy rain early Thursday. Minor flooding will be possible during the morning hours. Rain chances will decrease into Thursday afternoon and become more spotty in nature.

The sky will be partly cloudy today and rain chances are only coming in at 20% to 30%. This means that we'll only see isolated shower chances during the day. Temperatures rise to 86 with a heat index closer to 90 degrees.

Thursday brings back the likelihood of downpours that could put down close to an inch of rain from the morning commute until around noon. Highs will drop to near 83 degrees but the humidity won't go anywhere.

Friday rain chances decrease again to just isolated chances. Still with abundant moisture at the surface and in the upper levels of the atmosphere, we could see some downpours over the Tri-State.
The weekend heats up with small rain and storm chances.
