Wednesday night stays warm and hazy with overnight lows in the 80s ahead of sunrise Thursday.

A shift in wind direction out of the southeast will deliver an uptick in humidity, aiding in the development of a few spotty storms across the region with chances near 10% in the valley and 40% in the mountains.

The increase in moisture produces a few clouds both Thursday and Friday with highs falling from 108º Wednesday, to 106º Thursday, and 103º on Friday.
