The high today is supposed to be 91, which doesn’t even seem that hot anymore. And the chance of rain is real and increasing throughout the day.

The National Weather Service gives us a 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms after 2 p.m., with a possibility of heavy rain. Wind gusts could reach 16 miles per hour.

Storms could continue until about 1 a.m., with rain continuing into Saturday. The overnight low is expected to be around 64.

All that rain turns into relief from the heat on Saturday, when the high should be around 84 degrees.
