Sunshine, highs in mid-80s forecast after the rain

Clear skies and sunshine and highs in the mid-80s are forecast Wednesday, with the low-pressure system that dumped rain on the region Tuesday off to the northeast.

Chances for showers and storms were expected to linger overnight, but after that, clouds are forecast to all but disappear. Blustery winds of 15-20 mph could remain.

Mostly sunny skies are expected to continue Thursday and through the weekend, with cooler and drier air over the region. Highs are forecast in the lower 80s each day, with overnight lows in the 50s and 60s, below normal for August.
