Scattered showers and storms….As we move through our late Sunday, a few scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms are possible, capable of producing heavy downpours. Otherwise, expect mostly cloudy skies with low temperatures in the upper 50s and lower 60s. On Monday, scattered rain will be possible as an area of low pressure tracks over the area. A few strong, isolated thunderstorms are possible by afternoon and evening as our temperatures warm into the lower 70s. We’ll keep a close eye on it. Rain will continue overnight Monday into early Tuesday morning. Then, we’ll see partly cloudy skies through Tuesday afternoon. High temperatures will be in the mid 60s. On Wednesday, highs will warm back into the mid 70s, but for the rest of the work week, we’ll start seeing a gradual dip in our high temperatures. Highs will creep back into the 60s Thursday and Friday. We’ll be in the 50s next weekend.
