Tracking showers and possible storms….Keep your rain gear handy. Some of us may have to dodge a few showers and storms over the next couple of days.

As we move through our Monday afternoon, expect a few scattered showers and possibly a rumble of thunder, courtesy of a stationary front to our south.  Some of the rain could be heavy, which could cause some localized flooding. A few showers are also possible this evening. Otherwise, we’ll see mostly cloudy skies. High temperatures will be in the lower 80s. Tonight, we could see a few more showers and an isolated thunderstorm. Low temperatures will be in the mid 70s.

As the stationary front lingers around into Tuesday, expect scattered showers and storms in the forecast. Some of the rain could be heavy. High temperatures will be in the mid 80s.

Through the end of the work week, our weather will remain a bit unsettled. However, we’re not expecting as much rain. Our temperatures, though, will be going up into the upper 80s and lower 90s by week’s end. The 90s will stick around into the weekend, too.

Today: Mostly Cloudy, Scattered Showers/Storms(30%). Highs in the mid 80s. Winds: NE/E 5-10 mph.

Tonight: Mostly Cloudy, Scattered Showers/Storms(30%). Lows in the mid 70s. Winds: E 5-10 mph.

Tomorrow: Mostly Cloudy, Scattered Showers/Storms(40%). Highs in the mid 80s. Winds: SE 5-15 mph.
