Breezy, warm Thursday afternoon with some showers

Warmth and humidity will be on the rise today and tomorrow as gulf breezes continue to funnel in rich moisture ahead of our next storm system. An elevated strong to severe storm risk exists to our north during the day Friday, with a more subdued version reaching us closer to midnight. Strong winds continue to be the primary concern locally that could lead to some isolated wind damage and power outages in the overnight hours. After a brief dose of heavy rain, frequent thunder, and lightning we're looking better for World Series Game 6 at home, though a few daily lighter showers may linger through Monday.
