Tracking rain and thunderstorms….Rain chances are going up late Sunday into Monday. But as we begin our Sunday, some of us will wake up to some low clouds and patchy fog. While an isolated shower is possible early in the day, rain chances will go up by late afternoon into the evening in advance of an area of low pressure. That low will cross the area Sunday, giving way to scattered showers. Otherwise, expect mostly cloudy skies. Southerly winds will help our high temperatures climb into the lower 70s. Scattered rain will continue into Monday. A few isolated thunderstorms are possible as high temperatures rise into the low to mid 70s. Drier weather moves in by Tuesday with highs in the low 70s. Highs will remain the 70s through Thursday before cooler weather moves back in. By next weekend, highs will dip into the 50s. And don’t forget to set your clocks ahead one hour before bed Saturday night. Daylight Saving Time begins!

Saturday Night: Partly to Mostly Cloudy. Areas of Patchy Fog. Low temperatures in the mid 50s. Winds: S/SW 5-10 mph.
