Tuesday will see mild weather. Then, showers and isolated thunderstorms will increase across portions of the three-state region late Wednesday night, and then area-wide on Thursday with the passage of a cold front, the National Weather Service says.
Friday morning will see below normal temperatures and dry conditions which will continue through much of next weekend. No hazardous weather is expected.
