Tracking more rain and storms over the next several days….It was nice to see the sun late Saturday afternoon, but over the next several days, clouds, rain and storms will likely be the rule.

All eyes are on a cold front that will approach the area on Sunday. We’ll see partly to mostly cloudy skies and a few scattered showers and thunderstorms. Sunday will not be a washout, but if you have any outdoors activities planned, keep the rain gear nearby. Any storms that develop could produce heavy rain. Southerly winds will help our high temperatures to climb into the mid and upper 70s. A few areas could touch the lower 80s for highs.

Then, next week, get ready for even more rain and storms.  The cold front will stall along the coast through the middle of the work week. That means we’ll see wet weather on and off.  High temperatures on Monday will be in the low and mid 80s. By Tuesday and Wednesday, highs will cool into the 60s and 70s.

Saturday Night: Mostly Cloudy. A Few Isolated Showers Possible (20%). Low temperatures in the mid and upper 50s. Winds: E 5-10 mph.

Sunday: Partly to Mostly Cloudy. Scattered Showers and Storms (40-50%). High temperatures in the mid and upper 70s. Winds: S 5-15 mph.

Monday: Partly Sunny. Chance of Rain/Storms (30%). High temperatures in the lower 80s. Winds: SW 10-15 mph.
