      Clouds, humidity, and showers will be making a return to the Stateline in the coming days.

      Before all that, tonight should provide one last dry, comfortable night with lows in the upper 50's, along with low humidity and a few clouds.

      Much of Thursday will be cloudy yet dry, though the humidity starts to rise. Temperatures look to top out in the upper 70's.

      By Thursday evening, showers and storms start to slide into the area, and will continue off and on through Friday. While the storms aren't expected to be strong, watch out for occasional heavy downpours, since the air will be pretty humid. Friday stays in the middle to upper 70's.

      Saturday and even Sunday may have a stray shower or two, then dry weather resumes next week.
