Cooler temperatures, though still well above normal for this time of year, are forecast in the Baltimore area Thursday, with cloudy skies and highs in the mid-70s, according to the National Weather Service.

Partly to mostly cloudy skies are forecast, with calm winds for most of the day.

But winds could be increasing and thunderstorms moving through in the evening and through Friday morning as a cold front passes through. Winds could reach 15-20 mph in the evening.

Forecasters predict an 80 percent chance of thunderstorms after midnight, with about three-quarters of an inch of rain possible.

Highs are forecast in the lower 70s on Friday, with calmer winds and cloudy skies once any storms pass through.

Sunshine is forecast for the weekend, with highs in the mid- to upper-60s.
