Tracking rain, which could lead to minor flooding….As we move through our Monday, all eyes will be on an area of low pressure to our south. This low will track across our area, giving way to heavy rain. We’ll likely start our Monday with clouds and a few isolated showers. But as we move through the morning and the afternoon, rain chances will go up, along with the potential for minor flooding. Turn around, don’t drown! Otherwise, expect high temperatures in the mid 60s. On Tuesday, as the low moves out of the area, rain chances will go down, giving way to mostly to partly cloudy skies. Highs will warm into the lower 70s. On Wednesday, Veterans Day, we’re expecting mostly sunny skies with highs in the upper 60s. A couple of showers are possible on Thursday as a weak cold front moves in. Behind the front, temperatures will cool into the mid 60s on Friday and into the mid and upper 50s next weekend.

Tonight: Mostly Cloudy. Isolated Shower Late (20%). Overnight low temperatures in the lower 50s. Winds: NE 5-10 mph.

Monday: Cloudy Skies. Rain Likely (80%). High temperatures in the mid 60s. Winds: NE-E 10-20 mph.

Tuesday: More Clouds Than Sun. Chance of Showers (50%). High temperatures in the lower 70s. Winds: W 5-15 mph.
