Tropical Storm Danny could impact weather by weekend

FORECAST IN DETAIL
Today makes two in a row -- two straight days with tons of sun and virtually no chance of rain. Unfortunately, we can't offer you the same mostly sunny and totally dry forecast for tomorrow, Friday or the weekend (when you could probably use it most). In fact, confidence goes way down for the weekend forecast, pending the potential but uncertain influence of Tropical Storm Danny, now developing in the Atlantic.
Today (Wednesday): Remember yesterday? That's today's weather, too. Just add a few more degrees. We're mostly sunny again with moderate humidity, a light breeze from the west/southwest and highs in the low 90s. UV Index will be way up there, so lather on the sunscreen if you're taking the day off to soak up some sun. Confidence: High
Tonight: No weather troubles to speak of tonight. Temperatures drop through the 80s this evening, on their way to overnight lows in the low 70s downtown, upper 60s in the burbs, under partly cloudy skies. Confidence: High

Tomorrow (Thursday): After two mostly sunny and rain-free days in a row, a cold front stalled out nearby brings some modest changes to our weather. We're looking partly sunny Thursday with continued moderate humidity and highs mainly in the mid-to-upper 80s. Late afternoon and evening bring a 30% chance of some showers and thunderstorms. Confidence: Medium
Tomorrow Night: Shower and thunderstorm chances persist around 30-40%. Otherwise, partly cloudy with lows in the 60s (suburbs) to near 70 in town. Confidence: Medium
Flow from the northeast or east means a partly to mostly cloudy and cooler Friday with increased shower and storm chances and highs probably in the low-to-mid 80s at best. Meanwhile, we'll be watching the progress of what is currently Tropical Storm Danny, which could be moving toward the Atlantic coast. Confidence: Medium
The weekend is a major wildcard. If the system that was recently named Tropical Storm Danny tracks close enough to the coast, then Friday night and Saturday could be cloudy, cool, rainy and breezy. If it stays far enough offshore, then we'll probably see more typical summer fare. Early signs are that the system may race to the northeast late Saturday, so that by Sunday we're left with a run-of-the-mill summer cold front, which could spawn some clouds, showers and storms of its own. Confidence: Low
