A persistent weather pattern will continue to bring scattered showers and a few thunderstorms to the state over the next couple of days.  Morning sunshine in most areas will give way to afternoon clouds today and Friday.  Moisture continuing to stream in from the west and southwest will allow for the showers and thunderstorms to develop later today and again on Friday.  High temperatures will be mainly in the 60s, with a few lower 70s.  Overnight lows will dip into the 30s and 40s.
