Tornado warnings were issued for some counties Tuesday afternoon, but there were no reports of twisters touching down.

Many areas also saw heavy showers and thunderstorms and there were some reports of downed trees and other minor damage.

As the cold front moves off to the east late Tuesday, we will see some drier weather move in for Wednesday as much less humid conditions come back into the area.

Temperatures will also be cooler on Wednesday. High pressure will take over and promote nice, dry and comfortable conditions for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday with temperatures back on the rise.

The warmth will peak in the mid-80s on Saturday when the next cold front will bring a nighttime shower or thunderstorm.

At this point, Sunday looks to be dry and comfortable.
