Tracking more showers and storms….Don’t put away your umbrella just yet. We’re tracking more showers and storms in your forecast.

As we move through our Monday night, a couple of isolated showers and storms are possible. Otherwise, we’ll see partly to mostly cloudy skies. In fact, a lot of us will get through the night without any rain.  Low temperatures will be in the mid 70s.

On Tuesday, we’ll continue to see the threat of scattered rain and storms. Any storms that develop will have the potential to produce heavy downpours, gusty winds, and frequent lightning. Otherwise, as we go through the day, we’ll see a mix of clouds and sun with high temperatures in the low to mid 90s.

A few showers and thunderstorms are in Wednesday’s forecast. Highs will be in the low to mid 90s. Then, for the latter part of the work week into next weekend, our rain chances will go down, but the heat is cranking up. We’re expecting highs in the low to mid 90s. But because of the humidity, it will feel like the triple digits in several areas. We’ll continue to keep an eye on it for you.

Tonight: Partly to Mostly Cloudy. Isolated Showers/Storms (20%).Low temperatures in the mid 70s. Winds: S 10-15 mph.

Tuesday: Clouds and Sun. Scattered Showers/Storms (40%). High temperatures in the low to mid 90s. Winds: SW 10-20 mph.
