April 12, 2013|By Scott Dance, The Baltimore Sun

Thunderstorms and rain showers are expected to usher in cooler temperatures to the Baltimore area Friday, with highs in the mid-70s, according to the National Weather Service.

Showers were likely to start early Friday morning, with a chance of storms through the early afternoon.

A so-called "back-door" front, moving in from the east, was expected to cool overnight lows down to the upper 40s and lower 50s.

The cold front could bring breezy winds of 10-20 mph.

Beyond the front, through the weekend, more seasonable temperatures are forecast.

Lows are forecast in the 40s and 50s, with highs in the lower- to mid-60s Saturday and Sunday. Clear to partly cloudy skies are expected.

Another warm-up could be ahead early next week, with highs forecast in the mid-70s to around 80 degrees Monday and Tuesday.
