A chance for a few isolated showers and storms returns for Thursday with lows in the 50s and highs in the 70s under a partly cloudy sky.

In the tropics, our next named system will soon form. It is designated 'Potential Tropical Cyclone Thirteen'. It will likely become Julia. At this point, the models take it into the Caribbean and then central America. High pressure to the north should keeps this storm moving toward the west.  No immediate threats for us.  We will let you know if the tracks change.
