Tracking rain and a cool down… We will start today with sunshine but clouds will build in through midday as we warm to near 80. Scattered showers will move in and fire up this afternoon and evening. A few thunderstorms are possible but severe storms are unlikely. Rain chances will taper off tonight and clouds will near out overnight with lows falling into the mid 50s.

Expect plenty of sunshine again tomorrow but it will be much cooler. Highs will only reach the mid 60s, about 15 degrees cooler but near normal. The cooler air will stick around for Friday with partly cloudy skies.
