Tracking severe storms… We will see multiple chances for rain and storms today. Round one will move through early this morning with pockets of heavy rain and possible thunderstorms. Rain will move out by mid-morning. Expect sunshine and a warm up into the 80s this afternoon. Round two will move in this evening with more heavy rain and possible severe thunderstorms. Gusty winds, hail and heavy downpours will be our biggest threats but (as with any severe weather chance) the possibility of tornadoes does exist. Rain and storms will move out late tonight and skies will clear for Tuesday. Expect highs in the 70s for midweek but dropping into the 60s for the end of the work week and weekend.
