Some days Mother Nature throws the good stuff at you and some days she's got nothing but junk. Despite the holiday, today is a junk day. There's a cruddy-looking stationary front stretching from the East coast back to the Rockies this morning. The front will slowly sink south of the city the next couple of days. A series of upper level disturbances, artistically depicted above, along the front is a near guarantee of showers and thunderstorms through Friday.

So, good chance of showers this morning with a better chance of showers and thunderstorms this afternoon into tomorrow morning. Some of that rain may be intense. High today in the mid 70s. Cooler tomorrow and more cooler on Friday. Let's end on a high note: Sunny and warm on Saturday.
