The day will be mostly quiet with partly cloudy skies and temperatures in the mid-seventies. There is a chance of a few showers later in the evening due to a weak cold front moving in, but it won't bring much cold air. The weather will clear up on Friday with temperatures in the low seventies over the weekend. The speaker also mentions a potential warm-up and a risk for severe weather next week.

Temps approaching 80° next week.
