Tracking rain and possible storms for the work week….Have your rain gear handy this week. We’re tracking several rain chances. For tonight, expect a few scattered showers as a cold front moves in from the northwest. Otherwise, we’ll see mostly cloudy skies with overnight temperatures in the mid 50s.

The front will settle to our south on Monday. Now, while there’s a slight chance of a stray shower Monday, best chances will be to our south. Otherwise, expect partly sunny skies with highs in the lower 50s. Rain chances will go back up Tuesday and Wednesday as an area of low pressure and cold front approach the area. A few thunderstorms are also possible Wednesday as temperatures soar into the 60s. Some storms that develop could be strong with heavy rain and gusty winds.  Some showers could linger into Thursday morning.  High temperatures next weekend will be in the upper 40s.
