High pressure will remain in control of the weather pattern today through Wednesday, leading to continued warm and dry conditions. A cold front will cross from the west Thursday into Friday and increase the chances for showers and thunderstorms. This front will likely stall to our south early Saturday before lifting north through early Sunday. This will keep shower and thunderstorm activity around through most of the weekend.
