There is a chance of rain and thunderstorms late Tuesday night into Thursday, with the better chance of precipitation on Thursday.

Any storm has the potential to disrupt outdoor activities. Motorists need to be aware of high water on highways, and golfers and other sporting enthusiasts should exit golf courses and playing fields when thunder is heard.

Behind the storm system, it will turn cooler for the weekend with highs in the mid- to upper 50s.
