More scattered storms tonight into the start of the work week….The First Warning Storm Team has been tracking strong thunderstorms this Sunday evening, producing a lot of heavy rain and causing localized flooding for parts of the area. Turn around, don’t drown. The storms are also producing gusty winds, which could cause some power outages. Otherwise, as we go through the night, expect the rain to taper off late, giving way to mostly cloudy skies. Areas of patchy fog will likely develop overnight. Low temperatures will be in the mid 70s.

On Monday, we’ll start the day with areas of patchy fog. Then, we’ll see partly sunny skies with more scattered showers and storms by the afternoon. But for most of the work week, our rain chances will go down along with our temperatures. Highs on Monday will be in the lower 90s. Then, we’ll get a break from the extreme heat through midweek as our highs slip into the mid 80s.

Tonight: Mostly Cloudy. Scattered Showers/Storms (40-50%). Low temperatures in the mid 70s. Winds: SW 5-10 mph.

Monday: Sun and Clouds. Scattered Showers/Storms (30%). High temperatures in the upper 80s and lower 90s. Winds: W 5-10 mph.

Tuesday: Sun and Clouds. Isolated Storms (20%). High temperatures in the upper 80s. Winds: NW 5-10 mph.
