WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Although we'll stay mainly dry through much of the evening, some late-night storms could start to push back to the coast at about 10 p.m.

A weak back door cold front will be moving through the area, giving us a nice holiday weekend with low-end rain chances and lower humidity too!

Temperatures hover around 90 degrees with dew points in the lower 70s and upper 60s — a refreshing change from the high humidity we've had all summer long.
