The reasoning behind the brief cooldown is because a cold front, along with a low pressure system, that will be drapping across the region overtime. That will allow the chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms Friday into Saturday. Highs will be in the upper 80s across the region Friday into Saturday. But for Thursday, we will see highs in the upper 80s to low 90s.
