Posted at 4:04 PM, Jul 10, 2015

Tracking several storm chances….As we move through the work week, keep your rain gear handy. We are tracking several opportunities for storms in your forecast. On Monday, we’ll see mostly cloudy skies. A few isolated showers are possible in the morning. Then, expect scattered storms to develop in the afternoon and evening, which could produce heavy rain and frequent lightning. High temps will be in the mid 80s. On Tuesday, we’ll have another chance of storms late in the afternoon into the evening. Some of those could be strong to severe.  Wet weather will linger into Wednesday, too, as an area of low pressure drops through the area from the north. Again, we could see some strong storms by then. Highs will be in upper 80s and lower 90s on both Tuesday and Wednesday.

Tonight: Partly Cloudy. Stray Shower (10-20%). Mild. Lows in the upper 60s and lower 70s. Winds: S 5 mph.

Monday: Mostly Cloudy. Scattered Showers/Storms (50%). Highs will be in the mid 80s. Winds: SE 5-10 mph.

Tuesday: Partly Sunny. Scattered Showers/Storms (40-50%). Highs in the upper 80s and lower 90s. Winds: SW 10-15 mph.
