Tracking scattered showers and thunderstorms in your forecast….As we move through this Sunday, expect partly to mostly cloudy skies as an area of low pressure approaches the area from the west. That low will cross the area today, giving way to scattered showers and possibly a couple of isolated thunderstorms. Southerly winds will help our high temperatures climb into the lower and middle 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 afternoon with highs in the upper 60s and lower 70s. Highs will remain in the 70s through Thursday before cooler weather moves back in. By next weekend, highs will dip into the 50s.

Today: Partly to Mostly Cloudy. Scattered Showers (40-50%). Isolated T’storm Possible. Warmer. High temperatures in the low to mid 70s. Winds: SE 5-10 mph.

Tonight: Mostly Cloudy. Scattered Showers (60%). Low temperatures in the upper 50s. Winds: E 5-10 mph.

Tomorrow: Mostly Cloudy. Scattered Showers (50%). Isolated T’storms. High temperatures in the lower 70s. Winds: S 5-10 mph.
