Hazy, warm and humid conditions are likely over the next several days with chances for showers and thunderstorms.  Much of the weekend will be dry, but a few thunderstorms are possible, especially during the afternoon and evening hours.  Any storms that develop will have the potential to produce heavy rain and gusty winds.  Thunderstorm chances will continue into the middle of next week before a cold front ushers in cooler and drier conditions by Thursday and Friday.
